Throughput over backlog

Last week I wanted to share the cool photo form the banana peel technique. When I was writing the blog post, I created the following sentence (following the Agile manifesto style):

Latency and throughput over estimation and velocity

Paul Hammant suggested a better sentence:

Throughput over backlog

I totally agree with him. There is a subtle, but important difference. In his own words: Throughput (as a higher number) is better than backlog (as a high number). In other words you want throughput to be high and backlog to be low.
