Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
I’ve added a set of slides on Getting Results the Agile Way to the Getting Results Knowledge Base. The overview slides provide a quick walkthrough of the system and then the additional slides are short step throughs of key ideas (The Rule of 3, Monday Vision, Daily Outcome, Friday Reflection, and Hot Spots.) (Note that the slides are hosted on Slideshare.)
The Rule of 3 - Setting a limit of 3 makes it easy to focus and prioritize on meaningful results. Grouping things in 3's makes them easy to remember and repeat.
Monday Vision, Daily Outcomes, Friday Reflection - This is a pattern for weekly results. It's a way to use stories to make your week more meaningful and connect to your values and passion. Each week is a fresh start.
Hot Spots - Hot Spots are a way to see the forest from the trees. You can think of your life as an investment portfolio or heat map of what's important. Hot Spots help you invest your time and energy more effectively.
