Beginning and Ending with Gratitude

By

I’ve experimented with gratitude for many years. It started with me wanting to believe its value. Now, there was this messy middle of my experiments where I would find myself frozen with inaction, insincere, and awkward. I had to build the courage to notice and appreciate others. To my surprise, it wasn’t a noble deed for them, rather; it built an energy store for me. An energy store that I could use to great effect and impact.

In most cases, it would be fine, in this case, however, it isn’t. You can’t shake the deep feeling in your stomach, that feeling of innate fear. “I don’t want to be at this meeting,” you repeat your mantra as you enter the room.

Cooks and Chefs: Why Agile Has not Fixed Our Problems

By

If you haven’t had an “Agile” evangelist (like myself) hunt you down yet, here’s what to expect. We might suggest that if you don’t know how Agile and one of its popular frameworks will revolutionize your product, service, or industry, we think your company is squarely located under a rock.

Okay, I’m just kidding. But you know what I’m saying? Agile has become a jungle of tooling vendors and consulting companies selling frameworks that are implemented as a blueprint. There are too many cooks, when what we need are chefs. Let me explain…
