Why is it so hard to do great work at scale?
So good. Thanks for sharing this for the rest of the world!
Read it twice, absolutely thoughtful and spot on! Thanks for writing this George.
Loved reading this bud, so many parallels across mid to large size tech companies can be drawn from this, lots of lessons designers and leaders can learn from, incredibly inspirational. Thank you for taking the time to write this!
Really enjoy. Thanks for sharing!
Definitely on point. You can pretty much sum up the current layoffs across the tech industry with leadership setting the wrong incentives. If you tell a manager that to get to the next level they need to grow their team to X size, the result is a bloated team with low quality hires where decisions are made by committee. Which in turn leads to craft being nowhere to be found.
I loved this George. Resonated with me on many levels. Thank you for taking the time to write and document.
Love the narration on craftsmanship, small team & tech debt.

Great read. What would be an example of a craft focused counter metric?
