Five Point for Friday

It is almost the weekend. Here is what I am working on, thinking about, and enjoying.

What I am listening to – Miles Davis on Alexa from Spotify.  What an awesome appliance.

Project I am working on – Creating my perfect Profile Pic with

What I am Reading – I love to read, one way to continue to read and do other activities is with audilble.com.  This week I have been listening to One Year After by William R. Forstchen a sequel to his hit novel One Second After. Months before publication, One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at the dangers of EMPs. Great story of what actualy could happen.  From an Agile perspective, the story shows that you need to work the problems that give the best value to the community.

Quote that I am Thinking about this week — Tom Peters has been a fan of mine for as long as I can remember.  I had an economics professor say that to improve you had to Tom Peter it.  “Boss: Observe yourself closely over the next 60 MINUTES. Did you LISTEN more than you talked?” As a project manager I have learned this lesson.  It is not to late to change.

 

Agile Success Criteria –  “A Bias for Action.” I, too, concluded that big businesses’s #1 problem is still, “Too much talk, too little do.” Confirmed with Tom Peters
