Dave Packard’s take on the Architecture Commandments

I just ran across this classic set of rules to management by Dave Packard, of HP fame: Dave Packard’s 11 Simple Rules. Succinct and well-written, I think they relate well to two of my Architect Commandments: “Empower developers” and “Show the way”. I guess the underlying message is that, no matter who you are, you are part of a team. Negativity hurts you as much as it hurts the other person. To grow tomatoes, you need to give them water and sunlight. Or something like that.
