Open Heart Surgery Lessons Learned for IT Part 1 – Collaboration and Agility

Open Heart Surgery Lessons Learned for IT Part 1 – Collaboration and Agility

Last Friday (July 13, 2012) I got to see open heart surgery.  It is technically called Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) and it was a triple bypass; which means that three coronary arteries were by passed due to blockage.  As a SQL Developer and DBA at the American College of Cardiology I felt like this would be an excellent opportunity to learn about the data I am responsible for collecting and protecting. I learned a lot, and although this post isn’t going to be very technical it’s still something every DBA, Developer, or anyone who works in IT might learn a little from. Of course I will be giving it a DBA twist to keep it in line with the purpose of this blog 🙂

So let me break down some of the things I observed and relate them to how things work in IT or how we can use some of these strategies day to day to make our jobs better. I will separate the posts across the next three days so that people don’t get bored reading one long post.  This is the first of four parts, enjoy.
