A colleague from my team started playing golf lately. Totally unexpectedly for me, I found out that these days equipment is not expensive any more and you do not need to be a club member. Since playing golf alone is not as much fun as playing together and having some competition, my colleague persua...

Success is a state

- Andy Brandt

Our culture is conditioning us to instinctively think of success as a one-time event. In movies when lovers finally overcome obstacles and get together the story ends – “they lived happily ever after” (the interesting questions is: “how?”). In sports an athlete runs, ju...

I love being Scrum Trainer, mentor and coach. It provides regular insights into human behaviour that I personally find utterly fascinating.

- Ryan Cromwell
in Community Blogfeed

Teams talk some good game when they sell Agile to their organizational leaders: real software in a few weeks, higher quality, and, if they’re really good, risk reduction.  “See, if we build these features early,” they say, “and people don’t like it, we’ve sav...

- Ryan Cromwell
in Community Blogfeed

One of the important aspects of Scrum and the more fundamental concept incremental delivery is building Done software each iteration.  There are a lot of holes in that statement, but that makes sense; Scrum is full of holes… on purpose.  If you want answers rather than a framework b...
