Stop Giving Away Your Greatest Advantage at Work

There’s a good chance that you’re working too hard right now. Well, maybe not right now, because you’re reading this sentence, so perhaps these days. I’d bet...
Pintolaranja's insight:

This is not about lazing around, folks, read carefully through.

One can (or rather should) not be too busy that improving, developing skills and doing work with proper quality gets put behind. That is utterly wrong.

Do value yourself as well, you will then become more valuable for your employer.

If they don't like it, then maybe you are not in the right place?

 

It is really hard to let go of the "busy busy bang bang" approach (thanks @leanvoices! - aka Stephen Parry), but not impossible.

The Achilles Heel of Customer Development

The Achilles Heel of Customer Development | Innovatus | Scoop.it

It al boils down to communication, right?

Ok, so why doesn't it happen most of the times? Because it is done wrong. And has A LOT of assumptions being taken instead of facts that result from true interaction with your customers. They know what they want. Most of the times they just don't know how to explain it to you. That is my opinion.

So, either find a way of having a common language to work with or the abyss will keep standing right there wayting for you to fall.

Ideas vs. Time: how long does an idea take to develop?

Ideas vs. Time: how long does an idea take to develop? | Innovatus | Scoop.it

On calendar versus effective effort time spent.

About how far are you willing to go and how much are you willing to invest to get something available out in the world.

 

Have you ever thought about it?

The actors guide to the Daily Scrum

It is true. We see plenty of times that people look up to the scrum master as some sort of authority, they are reporting to this entity rather than their team mates.

As interesting as this phenomenon is, what can be done in order for them to bond to each other as they should?

Anyone sharing such experiences? This article is interesting, but I still lack this component. Examples of having it working properly :)
