Observer Effect

The “Observer Effect” – in physics and other disciplines – refers to the impact on a system caused by observation and measurement.  The act of measurement itself affects the system under observation, or if the system involves people, their actions are affected by their realization of measurement and observation. 

It’s become abundantly clear that far too often, the so-called “discipline” of software development and management is so impacted on both counts.

Thank you very much, Mr. Hawthorne.
