Wolf face

I enjoyed the podcast about Rawls' Theory of justice and the article about "BAU work", which is really about much more.

What it takes to scale engineering [Podcast] - interesting insights in GitHub's scaling 

How to tackle friction between product and engineering in scale-ups [Podcast] - I liked the articles, this is good too.

But what about the BAU work? - make work visible, especially hidden work, focus on values, structure teams along values 

Alignment > Autonomy - autonomy alone is not enough

Rawls' Theory of Justice [Podcast] - "Rawls’ radical idea was that those inequalities must be to the greatest advantage not to the richest but to the worst off."
