Make Sure Your Budget Gets on Screen

In Hollywood set design, you need to optimize in a way that optimizes for the most impact on screen–money spent off screen is effectively useless to the end result, the film.

This is a good analogy for product work. Product work is hard because it necessitates change and therefore can involve significant internal effort (off screen to continue the analogy) to produce the end result (on screen), even if it’s small.
