This week I am making good on my intent to post some of what I’ve been reading and found valuable.
I spent a bit of time reading about Feature Injection as a different way (than other agile processes) at dealing with requirements. I really am intrigued, and will try to adjust my requirements practice to include these concepts.
This also was interesting – as it clearly reflects what we all experience – decisions take mental energy, and making decisions when mentally tired is sub-optimal. One could infer from this how to re-arrange one’s schedule to make better decisions, or to be less mentally tired when decisions are needful.
This also was provocative – not because having a backlog is a bad thing, but because how we name things allows others to infer things from the connotative meaning in that naming.
A “calamity howler” (CH) is a persistently negative individual who predicts rack & ruin, frequently and at the top of his voice. It’s a great term that was especially popular in political writings back in the mid-to-late 1800′s but has since fell out of disuse. — who is the CH on your current project or in your current team.
