Lean Startup and Efficiency

Poignant quote on working in cross-functional teams with learning milestones:
"I predict that you pretty quickly will get feedback from your teams that the new process is reducing their productivity. They will ask to go back to the old way of working, in which they had the opportunity to “stay efficient” by working in larger batches and passing work between departments."
