About the Book
Few years ago, I started to wonder how to transfer the practices and principles of Agile to domains outside software development. After all, if they can enable such improvements in one place, they should do the same in other areas as well, especially given they’re all based on developments of psychology, not computer science. Going further, they should be applicable to life and personal development. It took me years to get to the essence.
Visibility, prioritization, limiting work in progress.
While these, sadly, are not instantly and subconsciously associated with Agile, they are essential to enabling all the possible benefits. They are also easily transferrable to every domain. This short and lightweight book will tell you how. You will learn a specific and easy to implement framework built upon these three principles. Your educated guesses on what to do next will become far more educated and your productivity will rise.
That is, if you give it a try.
About the Author
You could say I’m into IT for three decades – that is, if geek kid pushing BASIC code into his Atari counts.
I struggled when choosing college, so I needed to make a wise choice. I flipped a coin and ended up being programmer. Then manager. Then the Agile began and (following achieving mastery over two days of training) I became the worst Scrum Master I’ve ever seen. Then (hopefully) a somewhat better Product Owner. Then Agile Coach.
Now I run a small strategic consulting agency, focused on actual business outcomes, not means to an end.
I’m an introvert, yet I love to go on stage and boldly challenge all the misconceptions, myths, and legends that arose around Agile on numerous conferences.
I’m a philosopher of stoicism and essentialism. By pure coincidence (or not), these two streams of thought actually combine to create what I mean by Agile.
I lived in seventeen different places, before deciding to settle in Wroclaw, Poland. For now.
As a passionate petrol-head, I believe jogging to be reserved for lunatics only – which explains why you can see me jogging a few early mornings each week.
