fire prevention and firefighting

Moving around large Agile projects, I came across a common situation that hinders the team performance.  Individuals cannot allocate time for improving their work (and avoid future problems) because they are constantly firefighting current issues.

It typically happens like this: Someday on the past, the problem has started. Unfortunately, the issue (small at the time) was not clearly identified. It only got enough attention when it was on fire. Therefore the vicious cycle:

Everyone is busy putting out fires -> no time to improve (and avoid future fires) -> more fires

It takes discipline! Finding the balance between fire prevention and firefighting is not easy. You still need the fire sirens. But some experienced firefighters should be out of the fire department before the fire siren alert. Think preventive and proactively!

Like the original, the system of World of Warcraft is not as they are now rich in game guide is also not so friendly, wow new patch information is always needed. Everything is in the stage of trial and error, so many tears in the Wailing Caverns and Gnomeregan complex, structure, intersections andratchet distance between people from Lookout Mountain ran a dead horse. wow 5.3 will let you love wow more. Players often require six months in order to achieve the full level, which will lose a lot of people insist on not down.

It is very important that you know the basics of fire prevention especially with regards to your property and within your own home. It is a good idea that one or more members of your family knows how to put out a fire when it happens.
