People often ask why they should work on a Scrum team if their companies base rewards on individual efforts. This raises the question, how does Scrum help the individual?
I am always amazed when I ask people what they think the job of a manager is. I get answers like “to tell people what to do” to “stay out of the way” to “do my performance review” to “lead”.
The last one is always of interest to me. Do companies hire managers or do they hire leaders?
Mixing Scrum and Waterfall will provide you an interesting mix... This is one of my older MSDN posts from August, 2006. Enjoy. :)
Growing up, I had a dream of being a photographer. I didn’t know why I was drawn to it, but it was something I wanted to do. I bought my first camera when I was 10 years old – it was a Kodak Disc camera. My second camera was a Konica TC Autoreflex – it was my first real camera. I worked a summer for my dad at the wonderful rate of $2.50 per hour – I thought it was good for 11 years old. As I got older, I became more into photography.
