This is something I am thinking about since some time now. I like the proposed ideas. I expect to write some blog posts about agile strategy and agile management in the future.
A couple of weeks ago I already posted a nice presentation by Jurgen Appelo on Agile Project Management. Jurgen Appelo is a dutch project management expert and has a very popular blog: noop.nl. Here is another great presentation from him.
This great deck of slides gives an excellent inside into what SCRUM is all about. Check it out, it’s good.
Jurgen Apello gave an interesting presentation about agile project management at the “Agile Eastern Europe Conference” in Kiev. His approach is a mixture of complexity theory, agile best practices, some psychology and “soft skills”.
His 12 laws of software development are:
– Motivate People
– Empower Teams
– Align Results
– Optimize Communication
– Enforce Discipline
– Restrain Growth
– Reduce Risk
– Measure Performance
– Evaluate Feedback
– Acquire Knowledge
– Manage Uncertainty
– Evolve Practices
Those are not only valid for software development projects but for all projects with creative teams. His presentation is good, so check it out.
