Strategic Plan

Okay, this is only marginally related to agile, but I thought it was interesting nevertheless: How to Write a Detailed Strategic Plan. The main connection to Agile Work, is that you need to have a clear performance goal in mind towards which you are working. This may be a great way to clarify your thoughts about such a goal.

When is Scrum not Scrum?

Tobias Mayer has written a fascinating and valuable article about what it means to be doing Scrum. There are some very practical ideas (e.g. shortening Sprint or iteration length) and some more philosophical ones (e.g. the ScrumMaster role is not always necessary!)

Transplanting the Toyota Way

Thanks to Mark on the scrumdevelopment Yahoo! group for pointing out this great little article: The Toyota Way is Translated for a New Generation of Foreign Managers. The main thrust of the article is the difficulty that Toyota has had in getting managers outside of Japan to accept some of the core principles and practices of the Toyota Way. One interesting example:

Worse, some executives like Mr. Konishi complain of managers at Toyota factories who have not adhered to some of the company’s most basic creeds, like allowing workers to stop factory lines when they spot defects. Empowering factory workers has long been central to Toyota’s quality control.

Iteration 6 – Cleanup!

Well. Last iteration was great! I didn’t document it, because it was trivial: I had one full day coaching engagement plus a two-day public course. And then the rest of the week I did nothing!!! What a joy! Anyway, now onto iteration 6 – cleaning up from the cancelled iteration and catching up from the vacation.
