The Most Interesting Day
I had a very interesting day. Today, I tried to quit my job. Somehow, I kind of failed at it.I know exactly why I need to quit - and I know that it is what I must do. I am also aware of a few things that are happening around me and how these things affect w...

The more I do this, the more I realize - a large part of Agile is TRUST

Organizations that have a low trust threshold always have problems with Agile implementations

Organizations that want to improve their trust thresholds tend to have a chance at success

Interestingly, low trust organizations will try multiple times to "silver bullet" their way out - when it would be simpler, less painful and MUCH less expensive to just address the core issue...

I know that a Caribbean Cicada Wasp is huge - and one wasp in Indonesia is relatively large (and only recently discovered)

So for the Entomology community - what are the top 10 largest wasps (weight and length) out there?

In my mind, this is at the heart of an Agile transition. But many people do not fully understand, or fail to maintain, the thought behind this great article

Sometimes, we try to change something about ourselves that we believe will be simple and straightforward. A great example of this is the we...
