"Go and make the developers more productive" the Managing Director told Peter as he began his role as Interim Development Manager. There was an obvious frustration by the business with the productivity of the development team - and the development team was frustrated with the business!
This could be the story of how productivity improved by introducing lean ideas across the entire business and how it resulted in the faster delivery of value. And it is that. But more importantly, it's the story of how some experiments in toe-curling honesty has helped the business focus on their goal and removed frustration as all people get to use their own skills in delivering better products more quickly.
