Communication between customers and technitions is largely done via (MS-Word) documents. Created by people who are amateurish authors and consumed by non-enthusiastic readers. To simulate the difficulties, we played a telphone game 2.0. Here are the results...
proverbial knowledge travels easy own the communication chain.
"Die faktische Kraft des sprich-wörtlichen..."
"What, if the starting idea is not proverbial?"

das war ja mal ein klassisches Missverständnis. Weiter mit einem OPS Missverständnis...

the nerd value chain...

Nerds are problem solvers. If you know, how to operate nerds, you can earn a lot of money...
Usually a nerd will get some money to solve a problem. Like Stephan, who charges me 25c for MS-Exchange Tipps or for helping me with git merges... That is a value chain, but a short one...
Matroschkaing developers from customers via layers of project leads and sales people provides a much better value chain...
Of course there are still ways to optimize tihs nerd valu chain. I googled IT-Engineer wages in India and from that I calculated per hourly wages between 0,25 and 5€.
I believe, this is then a value drain rather than a value chain.

I dedicate this logo to the stopping of value drains.

forgotten Nerds work alone at the end of a value chain...
they do get very rare training, they work alone...

don't let them forget you!!

epic fails II - out sourcing

you implemented, maintained, cost cut, out sourced and iterated this loop...

your architecture now looks like a ghost town

epic fails III - back and forth management
