project management & leadership style. Whether you're anti-Jobs or

I'd like recommend a book I just finished: "Observing the User
Experience," by Mike Kuniavsky. He works at Adaptive Path.
The book is a beginner > intermediate primer on conducing focus
groups, usability testing and research.
It's quite insightful, and makes most work seem obvious. I learned
something new every chapter.

Two that immediately came to mind for me are:
At the Heart of Interaction Design by Lauralee Alben
Interaction Design History in a Teeny Little Nutshell by Marc Rettig
I wish Marc would turn this into a full-blown paper, rather than just
a slide deck.

everything, but then you're overprocessing.
You kill creativity. You kill productivity.
By definition, a culture like ours that
drives innovation is managed chaos.
