How to integrate rework into your everyday life while building software and why it's key to success.
Ive been getting a lot of requests lately of people asking for guidance for effective communication techniques when working in or with distributed agile/Scrum teams. I outline some approaches in my book, The Scrum Field Guide , but it is not all...
The most frequently asked question on any project might be, “When will you be done?” or “Will you have it all done by a certain date?” We all have experienced times when our projections have been way off and we’ve suffered as a result. Scrum promises a more adaptable planning scenario, one that allows for and indeed expects change. But does that promise mean that we don’t have toor can’tdo release planning any more?
The simple answer is no.
Looking for ways to use agile practices at home? This blog post was written in 2006 but it still applies today. I've since expanded it to my other kids (we had more).
I have been working on or with Agile teams, mostly Scrum, for almost four years now. On my first team, the Falcon team, and teams ever since, I have noticed a trend in the Daily Scrum meeting where people will say things they think the other team members want to hear. I found this disturbing as you can imagine, and I found a solution to prevent it.
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.
