The examples I gave were for physical things, but I would agree, investing in people is key. I saw somewhere recently a person said a manager is responsible for improving their people's skills. That should be part of their job.
Improvements in skill, which is a big part of DevOps that many companies ignore, have a much greater payback than hardware investment. Too many people (managers and staff), don't want to take time to revisit what code worked well adn what didn't, and then change their coding patterns.
Absolutely profound. I think it also speaks to the difference between buying an asset and buying a liability as often talked about by Robert Kiyosaki. An asset produces generates revenue, a liability generates expenses. The overtly frugal person simply limits spending on BOTH assets and liabilities.
