A Quarter Of An Hour


Looky here at what someone I know sent me:

PointTwoFive

This person is working on a project in which management requires time tracking in .25 hour increments. On some days, that poor sap and her teammates spend at least that much time at the end of the day aggregating and entering their time into their formal timesheets.

Humorously, those in charge of running the project have no qualms about promoting their process as “agile“.

I can’t know for sure, but I speculate that the practice of micromanagement cloaked under the veil of “agile” is pervasive throughout the software development industry.
