No donkey work please: What is donkey work? →
vinitblog: Hauling dirt is donkey work. Labor intensive but inefficient. And at the end of the day there’s very little to show for all that effort. Here’s an example of an experienced project manager (PM) generating donkey work: PM: I’ve scheduled a scrum every morning at 10am. Me: What’s a scrum?
