Four Lessons of Life: Applying them to Agile Projects
Tony Akins will share four lessons he has learned from life and how they apply to leading agile projects.
Do what works all the time - If a practice, technique, and/or approach works, do it all the time.
Don’t work in the dark - It’s all about feedback - the longer you work without feedback, the longer you are working in the dark.
Make it better - Unless you can make it (a piece of code, a project, a relationship) better, don’t bother working on it.
Everyone has value - Or, as my wife likes to say, everyone brings a gift to the table.
