Put Your People First

In the years I’ve been transforming organizations, a few requests get me worked up like a two-year old who skipped a nap.  Two of these are, “The right process will solve our people issues” and “The right tool will solve our people and process issues.” While I agree, processes and tools are important, people are […]

Stabilize The Patient First

Experimentation Means it’s OK to Fail

This ScrumMaster schedules, plans and runs the meetings, including the Daily Scrum.    His job is to make sure all the […]
