If you are to fail, fail early so that you can get up early. And fail more often so that you can learn. – Hasith

Excellent if you can deliver perfect. But don’t promise perfectness because you might face situations where you might not be able to perfect. – Hasith

More house building.

From Press From Press Mar 6, 201411:56 am

Groups will form again will build houses. This time there are no specific roles to be played. They will build a house, get feedback from the customer and then they will build another one.

From Press From Press Mar 6, 201411:49 am

The 99x investors are back on stage to do the same building but in a different approach/method. “incrementally’ building them as they say it.

From Press From Press Mar 6, 201411:48 am

These 7 wastes cost more money too. If you rework a lot, it will create more waste with this system.

Now we will do the same exercise in an agile way.
