The Software Process and Measurement Cast 664 features our interview with Sunny Han, CEO and Founder of Fulcrum.  Sunny and I talked about motivation, we talked agile development, and we talked about what it takes to see a vision through to reality. The ideas about engineering a communication architecture are phenomenal.  

Sunny Han is the CEO and Founder of Fulcrum, a manufacturing ERP platform dedicated to helping manufacturers build a better future. He led Fulcrum to raise a $3.1M seed round of venture capital in 2020.

Sunny is dedicated to delivering a connected future where frictionless manufacturing production and supply chains lead to faster and better product innovations.

“There’s no future of innovation that doesn’t include innovation in manufacturing.”

Re-Read Saturday News 

This week we focus on Chapter 7 of  Monotasking by Staffan Nöteberg.  This chapter is titled “Recharge Creative Thinking.” This chapter really is about the self-care needed to be both effective and creative. There are a number of ideas in this chapter that if you’re not familiar with them are frankly just really good ideas. Many of the ideas in this chapter I have been using for years and some of the inferred issues I am still working on.

As my experiment for this week, I would love to say that I am going to sleep more. What I will do is to move my phone away from the bed so I can’t get to it easily after I lay down.  I will also work to have an equal mix of sitting and standing.

Next week we will complete our re-read of Monotasking covering the Afterword from the book and some closing notes from me. We’ll also start the poll to pick the next book in the series. The entries for the weeks of August 28th and September 5th will feature reprints. I am going backpacking and turning off all communication devices.  As we prepare for the next book, is there a book you think we should “re-read”?  If you have ideas please let me know and I will add them to the list of current possibles:


Mik Kersten - Project to Product

Charles Duhigg - The Power of Habit

Tony Bouzón - The Mind Map Book

Chris Voss - Never Split The Difference

Douglas Squirrel and Jeffrey Fredrick - Agile Conversations

Next week we dive into one of the aspects of the attributes of Teams. Teams don’t live in a vacuum. Every team is an intersection of boundaries of all sorts of organizations. Organizations facilitate teams to a greater or lesser extent. In the workplace, the employer’s organization will have the most significant impact on how teams form and perform but it is not the totality. Other influences can affect the structure and performance of teams.

We will also have a visit from Jon M Quigley who will bring his Alpha and Omega of Product Development column to the podcast.
