1 Haskell Advocacy
1.1 At Work
Many people wonder why a language offering between 4 and 10 times better productivity hasn't swept the software industry yet. If you are working in the industry then you may already have had some conversations with managers about the possibility of introducing Haskell, and found that they always have some reason why this is not the right time or place. Maybe in a few months, or on another project. But not this one.
This page is intended to help programmers understand what the real obstacles are and how to overcome them.
1.1.1 Organisational Structure
Any large technical organisation can be divided into three groups. At the top you have senior management, who are there to set the overall strategy of the organisation and make sure that the big things happen to keep the organisation doing what it does as the world changes around it. In the middle are the middle management who take the big strategic plans and turn them into discrete projects and work packages, and at the bottom are the engineers who actually do the work.
