My Brother-in-law sent me an interesting article from the August edition of Fortune Magazine:

“Andy Grove had a saying when I worked at Intel”, says Chuck McMinn, a Silicon Valley veteran who spent 25 years at the chipmaker and a series of startups. “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”
That statement surely wouldn’t raise eyebrows if the subject was microchips, but it’s nowhere close: McMinn is talking about wine.
