Arbeitstechniken für Agilisten

Ich habe angefangen, auf der Website eine Sammlung von Produktivitätstechniken zusammenzustellen, die

  • ziemlich elementar sind, d.h. die damit auch leicht anzuwenden sind

  • die in verschiedenen Kontexten wirken: machen kann man allein andenden, manche in fast jedem Team-Setup

  • erprobt sind.

Das ist nur ein Anfang.

Techniken, die in der Aufzählung noch fehlen, sind z.B.:

Scaling the team - Part one


No, this post is not about increasing the size of your development team, but about how to establish some measurements in your team - typically during the retrospectives, but not only - to support continuous improvement: let's talk about Solution Focused Scales.

I already discussed this technique in my Solution Focus presentation, but listening to how people use this information, I realised I did not stress a few details that are actually quite important for a proper implementation of the technique.

Fehler und Fehlerkultur

Sven Tiffe hielt beim letzten AgileTuesday, unserem Münchner Scrum-Stammtisch einen sehr interessanten Vortrag über die Rolle der Kultur, oder wie er sagte, der Haltung bei Google.

Interessant ist die Fehlerkultur, die bei Google zum Erfolg beigetragen hat - und was man daraus lernen kann.

Now here's one thing that is important to consider: there is no such thing as resistance, there is just bad communication!

The best way to coach a team is...

…to coach its individuals one-to-one!

Agile mythology?

Last November I presented at the Deutsche Scrum the first version of my new presentation "Debunking Agile Myths". The core message of the presentation was to show that many of the things we believe in the world of agile are based on… ehm… nothing, actually!

Motivation: cause or effect?

In a conversation during the last agile coach camp Germany I was reminded of something I see often in agility: motivational interventions. Most, if not all, agile coaches use them in one form or another: a workshop moderated with a pot of energy on their side, a training where the reasons why agile is what it is are many times evangelistically explained with the goal of inspiring the participants, various games where motivation is either the goal itself or at least an important by-product.
