Quote of the Day

‘Strategies’ are big and sweeping and inherently pass the task of implementation to someone else. Tactics are inherently about executing. The distance between ‘strategic’ and ‘tactical’ is measured in meetings, PowerPoints, conference calls, and, well, ‘not writing code.’ Limiting (or even mostly eliminating) that distance is the key to making things happen.
I’m not saying that strategy isn’t important, just that strategy directly combined with tactical skill is the real killer combo.”
