Ahoi! Long time no see! :)
Sorry for the lack of writing the past few weeks, I simply haven’t found anything that I wanted to blog about. Today though, when reading my feeds, I stumbled on a post from Mike Cohn promoting his newly published book. In short, you can win a copy of his new book “Succeeding with Agile” by leaving a piece of advice in the post’s comments:
To win, enter as a comment to this post the one most valuable bit of advice you would give to a team that wanted to succeed with agile. I will pick the one bit of advice I like best and send the author a copy of the book. I will also pick a second winner at random from those who submit. So, you’ve got two chances to win so let’s hear your best one bit of advice.
My piece of advice is the following: “Know why you are willing to walk down this path.” Once you know, you’ll be able to make the right decisions as to what practices to adopt, remind people in the organization in case of doubts and most importantly stay focused on what you and the team have defined as the reasons for the change.
