Peter Drucker: The Rules of Effectiveness – Personal Growth – Medium

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/22

This is so simple and so hard at the same time: [WayBackPeter Drucker: The Rules of Effectiveness – Personal Growth – Medium:

  1. Design the Practice, Not the Person
    This means you have to set schedules when to do things and for how long.
    This is hard in an ever changing, ever interrupting world where tasks are of tough to estimate duration.
  2. Embrace Purposeful Abandonment
    Less+Less==More; which implies you should do a lot less things to be effective. Skip the things you do not really need.
  3. Switch From Exploring to Exploiting
    For me it was hard to understand, especially not being in my 20ies any more for a long time: high reward risky paths are better to be pursued than risk-averse paths.

The cool thing though: Peter Drucker found about all these during his life which was mostly (1909-2005) before computing and social network became ubiquitous.

So yes: the above should be possible in an agile environment.
