Life of A Programmer — Session 4.5 — How can you become more skilled than your fellow employees.

PRINCIPLE 4: ACCEPT NO VERBAL ORDERS

In 1961, Lockheed had a standard document called an ANVO. This meant
“ACCEPT NO VERBAL ORDERS”.

This is a very important and valuable concept. Spoken commands are
more likely to be misinterpreted.

Your boss might only make verbal commands. In this case, give him
your interpretation in writing.

When an ANVO has been issued, make sure that its required effort
is properly documented in your log.

    Thanks
