Manners is the key thing. Say, for instance, when you’re growing up, you’re walking down the street, you’ve got to tell everybody good morning. Everybody. You can’t pass one person. Usain Bolt

Read this before getting into my agile workshop, to get the best out of it.

  • If you know everything about agile, this workshop is not for you. The fact is that nobody knows everything about agile, which will take care of all project management scenarios. The team will have to innovate.
 
  • Agile is value based, not rule based. While reading it may sound simple, and implementation is tough. It is a journey, and everyone in the agile world is constantly innovating better ways of delivering value.
 
  • When you start understanding agile well, you may start thinking about the implementation challenges within your organization. Some of you might have implemented agile (fully or partial) and might have had some negative experiences about it. This may create some inner conflict, and may drive you to be cynical about it’s applicability. Yes, any change is painful. Just postpone cynicism.
 
  • Agile talks about just one development team. There may not be roles like team lead, associate project manager etc. Again, agile talks about servant leadership which is a 180 degree shift from traditional command and control. This may create some fear of realignment of your role to embrace agile. Just postpone that fear of change.
 
  • You might have heard a lot about agile. Just delete it. Just postpone judgment.
 
  •  Do not walk into the training room with these fears. It will hamper the ability to understand and appreciate the concepts. Postpone these fears of judgment, cynicism and change, till the second sprint.You may revisit these fears after gaining hands on experience on a couple of sprints.

Linkedin endorsements – The new form of social flattery?

Lot of people are endorsing me and some of the endorsements looks like a wish list of mine. While I have done some work in software engineering, general management and lot of work in project management, I get endorsements for Software architecture, Information strategy planning, entrepreneurship. I can only laugh at them. Majority of the endorsements are correct, but that 20% reads like my wish list. Some of the endorsements are from strangers who have never worked with me, nor attended any of my project management workshops. Overall it has a feel good factor. So, I welcome all positive endorsements, even if it is for skills I do not possess, and I am not going to endorse you for anything unless and until I am convinced about it. It cannot be another ‘You scratch my back and then I will scratch your back’. I do not want to reduce it to another form of mutual social flattery.
