Agile notes

These days I’m re-filling up my brain with all sort of knowledge edges from BlockChain and Machine Learning to all Agile variants.

Here are notes that I should remember.

A lot of managers don’t think twice about every day things that slow down developers

  • Slow or unstable development machines
  • Delays from business folks in clarifying requirements
  • Little to no feedback on the product until it’s already “done”
  • Loss of focus from repeated interruptions

To improve productivity remember to not try to fix single developers but fix the system around them.

“Organizations that are truly lean have a strong competitive advantage because they respond very rapidly and in a highly disciplined manner to market demand, rather than try to predict the future.” – Mary Poppendieck
