The mythical mythical man-month  ↦

Mailchimp CPO John Foreman drops some contra-conventional wisdom in this Smashing Magazine piece:

When I as CPO say, “we’re going to do this thing!” the reply then is often, “OK, so then what are we going to kill?” The Mythical Man-Month turns product development into a zero-sum game. If we want one thing, we must stop another. Now, that’s an actual myth, and I call hogwash.
