The Launch of the “Agile Observations from the Trenches” Blog.
Well, looks like I am finally joining the fray of agile community individuals that are posting their experiences, observations, and beliefs about all things agile. After telling most professional acquaintances at one point or another that I would start to blog about my agile life, I was eventually told to put up or shut up…so here it is.
I can’t say that it will be like most of the agile fare currently available on the internet. My plan is to share my unique perspectives on how agile is best implemented. Information that has been gathered during my engagements as a scrum master and the many agile classes that I have facilitated. And I can say with all honesty, I have learned more from training others on agile than in any other professional endeavor. Some of these experiences are true gems that I have wanted to share for awhile, so now I finally have the forum and opportunity. Now I get to see if what I have floating around in my head is actually worth anyone’s time to read.
So, this, my very first post, is nothing more than to announce my intentions to add to the knowledgebase of agile, a compendium of information that is continually growing, and more importantly, evolving. That is, if agile and the agile community truly wishes to practice what we preach, we are going to have to eat our own dog food and recognize those areas of opportunity. What better place to share these experiences than on the internet, the great equalizer.
I look forward to getting to know those of you who find some value in what I have to share. And finally, if you are reading these words, then let me offer a sincere word of gratitude that you have taken a moment of your time to read these words.
Until next time,
