Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." -- Albert Einstein
What you don’t know can hurt you and knowing the right strategies is like knowing the playbook for getting results.
Strategies are a big picture perspective while tactics are a small picture perspective. You can think of the strategies as guiding approaches: they guide your tactics while you pursue your goals. You can use strategies to help design effective approaches and to evaluate potential practices, methods or techniques. Mix and match strategies, but keep in mind that sometimes strategies support each other, while other times they are competing. Ultimately, you must map relevant strategies to your situation. Rather than try to decide or buy into a strategy, find a way to test and judge it based on your results.
Here is a collection of 25 Key Strategies for Results from the book, Getting Results the Agile Way.
You can read an explanation for each of these strategies at 25 Key Strategies for Results.
