Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
Some folks have asked me how is my new role on the Microsoft Enterprise Strategy team different from my old role on the patterns & practices team.
The short answer is … focus and scope of impact.
Here are some additional quick thoughts …
That said, a lot of things are still the same. I’m still focused on sharing and scaling expertise. I’m still focused on principles, patterns, and practices. I’m still hunting and gathering proven practices. In this case, it’s really all about patterns & practices for Enterprise Strategy.
My three main priorities right now are:
To make Enterprise Strategy more “executable” and to pave the way for prescriptive guidance, I’m in the process of building out a backlog of user stories for doing Enterprise Strategy engagements.
Separately, but related, I’m also building out a backlog of user stories for Cloud Strategy. I’ll share those in the near future, both for feedback and to share the most effective way I’ve found to share user stories with many people in an iterative and incremental way.
Sounds like another great adventure getting underway. Looking forward to fantastic things from you in this new role!
