In this episode of the Software Process and Measurement Cast we feature three columns! The first is our essay on the definitions of four critical words. What do the words effectiveness, efficiency, frameworks and methodologies really mean? These words get used ALL the time, however they really do have fairly specific meanings. Meanings that, once understood and used to guide how we work, can help everyone to deliver more value and make our customers more satisfied! The second column is from Jo Ann Sweeney with another of her stellar, Explaining Change columns. In this segment, Jo Ann talks about content and a framework to guide the development of content. Anchoring the Cast this week is Gene Hughson with another of his Forms Follows Function columns. Gene extends his mini-series on microservices with a discussion of whether granularity is irrelevant. Lots of content in this installment of the Software Process and Measurement Cast!

Re-Read Saturday News
The Re-Read Saturday focus on Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox’s The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement began on February 21nd. The Goal has been hugely influential because it introduced the Theory of Constraints, which is central to lean thinking. The book is written as a business novel. Visit the Software Process and Measurement Blog and catch up on the re-read.
Note: If you don’t have a copy of the book, buy one. If you use the link below it will support the Software Process and Measurement blog and podcast.
I am beginning to think of which book will be next. Do you have any ideas?
