Managers vs Makers

Developers (Makers) and Managers work differently. Interrupts are costly for developers and therefore the business.

TL;DR

Developers (Makers) and Managers work differently.

  • Makers plan in half-day blocks of time. These are developers.
  • Managers plan to minimize empty 15-minute slots in their calendar.

Interrupts are costly for developers and therefore the business.
