Description

Justin and Jon are joined by Jason Fried to talk about:

  • The philosophy behind their new book Shape Up.

  • Does Basecamp's approach to 6-week cycles differ for smaller teams?

  • "Long projects destroy morale. When things don't ship, you get frustrated." – Jason Fried

  • Why projects ship late (it's human nature).

  • Why work is like a hill.

  • How they make product decisions at Basecamp.

  • How do you know what you should work on next?

  • Why they don't believe in backlogs.

  • "That feeling of 'there's nothing to do, but there's everything to do' shouldn't be happening." – Jason Fried

  • "You need a system at some point. When you have two people, you can hack your way to anything. But as soon as you grow, you'll need a system." – Jason Fried

  • "What we have is not a perfect system. And even if it was, we don't execute these things perfectly." – Jason Fried
