    OK, last comment and I'll shut it.

    Go to the Wall Street Journal homepage, search for Ray Dalio, and read the first page or two of the interview called "The Soul of a Hedge Fund 'Machine'".

    That's got the be the weirdest workplace in the country, but one of the "best".

    Re: the conversation on 'open doors' in agile software development, I recall a chapter in Susan Cain's "Quiet" book which may shed some light. It is chapter 3, "When Collaboration Kills Creativity", highlighting some surprising research on work environments. Highly recommended.

      This isn't just an agile principle, BTW, this is an old school business practice advoated by Drucker and Deming.

      "...those doors to be opened..."
      Some people (most in my opinion) do not receive and process information verbally very well.
      It would be better to have written information.
      Notice how courtroom lawyers understand this issue -- (1) first, they tell the jury what they are going to hear, (2) second, the jury hears the information, and (3) third, the lawyer tells the jury what they have heard. This redundancy is necessary, and there will still be misunderstanding!
