Pig & Chicken Part 3 is about the bigger picture. It is about the culture of your organization and about memes that exist within that culture. Beyond just delivering a ranked list of "stuff", can you commit to being your best self each day?  What does it mean for YOU to commit to the organization? What is expected of you? What do you expect from each other? I'm not just talking tangibly... what does expectation feel like where you work? Is it sustainable?

Latest Article - Organizational Commitment: Pig & Chicken - Part 2


Many people really don't like the original cartoon (See & read Pig & Chicken part 1). When I decided to do three strips on the Pig & Chicken, I knew there would be a lot of 'concern', but based on where I want to go, I made the decision that it had to be done. Part 1 resulted in a lot of emails to me telling me they did not like it -- as well as people saying "they liked where I was going." Although only one person actually commented on it -- not sure what to make of that. Tweet the Agile Safari Cartoon!

Latest Article - Why Project Retrospectives Are Challenging
Project retrospectives are challenging. I spoke a bit about this in lessons learned vs. project retrospectives. You might look at a merger, acquisition, implementation of a new ERP system, or even a major upgrade of an ERP or CRM system. These are non-reoccurring events. A retrospective of this type is quite different from a typical agile retrospective, primarily because on this type of project, people will change and the project will not repeat (the definition of a project is that it is a unique endeavor). At issue here is the fact that if the people will not be the same and the project does not reoccur - then they can't come up with actions they will apply right away based on what they learned. Ideas for change often just end up in a spreadsheet, a book shelf, or some electronic tool. A big book of "lessons learned" that sits on the shelf gathering dust does not provide much, if any, value.
