My Mom's South Philly Cheesecake


My Mother worked as a special needs teacher at Saint Catherine's school in Philadelphia. She became friends with a parent of two autistic twins. This mother was South Philly in every way. Big hair, big attitude, larger than life. She shared this recipe with my mother and it has been a staple in our household.


  • 1 lb cream cheese
  • 1 lb ricotta cheese
  • 6 eggs

IMHO, Kanban and SCRUM attempt to achieve the same goal, throughput. However they put systemic pressure on different points of organizational breakdown.

SCRUM takes the stance that communication is where throughput suffers. Without effective communication, via iterative planning, efficiency is lost.

Kanban believes focus is the point of efficiency loss. By moving tasks through work limited stages a team gains laser focus which should encourage high throughput.

That doesn't mean that SCRUM doesn't value focus. It utilizes story points and velocity to encourage tightly focused iterations.

Nor does Kanban ignore communication. Boards communicate work status and well designed work in progress limits on your board should encourage communication and collaboration amongst team members.
