Trust, But Verify - by @lcecere #scm
"Avoid a System Integrator’s Recommendation. System integrators usually get a commission on the sale of the software. They are usually not a neutral party. Ask your system integrator for details on their arrangement with the software provider. Buyer beware!"

Lassoing S&OP - by @lcecere
"A common mistake by business leaders is thinking that they know what good looks like. The research that I have done recently dramatically challenges my 1990’s paradigms. (When companies hire from outside, they will attract talent from many companies. Each defining S&OP differently. As a result, when they sit around the table to discuss the process without detail, they will spin. Each thinks they know what S&OP should look like, but the discussions need to be facilitated to drive alignment.)"

The Ever-Changing Roles of the Developer: How to Adapt and Thrive
"Just as the developer’s role is changing, so too have our ways of measuring not only our progress but also the effectiveness and performance of our code, tools and processes. This increased visibility is a good thing, overall. When it comes to measurement, there is a whole bunch of wrong ways to do it, among them measuring lines of code or the number of deploys. In fact, this very visibility, inherent to all of the data we now constantly measure, has been a great boon to DevOps."

S&OP: Five Steps to Get Started - by @lcecere
"One of his dilemmas, within his organization, was the definition of the S&OP time horizon. The company had a strong manufacturing culture, and the focus was on the urgent. The S&OP process was currently owned by manufacturing leadership, and the focus was on a short-term duration of one-three months. We discussed the need for manufacturing leadership to cede ownership to the business and the organizational need to focus on S&OP as a tactical process from one-to-twelve months to drive the greatest business benefit."
