Process Improvement Principles

This is not a manifesto.

It looks a lot like a rather famous manifesto (the middle of it anyway) but it is not a manifesto.

This is just a set of principles that I've successfully applied in numerous personal and professional settings, always with good effect.

Pull is a better flow than Push
Continuous is more competent than Batch
Agreements are more negotiable than Orders
Brains per Task is more efficient than Tasks per Person
Improvement is a better goal than Compliance
Fail Now is cheaper than Fail Later
Simplicity works better than Discipline
Safety is best

May they serve you as well as they have served me so far.
