… do you remember the following ’92 brand new heavies song?
it’s gettin’ hectic, it’s gettin’ crazy,
it’s gettin’ hectic, it’s gettin’ wild!
It always sounded to me like they were singing about an unsuccessful project manager reporting to his chef – well, this needn’t to happen to your it-project:
in the last 10 years of project management i have tried several models (waterfall, V-model and so on) and finally
got addicted to agile project management (the Scrum method) combined with my personal special ingredients: non-violent communication (NVC).
This leads to a project-life described best with the song mentioned in the headline – sung by Jimmy Cliff (and later the Hothouse flowers):
It’s gonna be a bright, sunshiny day!
Scrum is the revelation, that the success of it-projects depends on every single involved person and the team they are forming together.
Wow, it took scientific people more than 30 years to discover this
In other words: With a minimal ruleset and a concept with a strong permanent feedback loop – integrating every steakholder in a project at the right place and time, this is the best working project management method these days.
The project manager is dead, long live the team!
That was the reason why i started the scrum journey 2 years ago – which led to being a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and Certified Scrum Professional (CSP), although i spent and still spend most of my it-life being a product owner (taking care of functional issues as well as responsibility for time, budget and resource planning).
So this is the right place to find out more about
- agile project management (Scrum)
- non violent comunication (NVC)
- architectural and conceptual work
- product management
- business development
