Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/24

From Client: “How much time will it take to finish this job?”- Your Ex-Waifu

Client: “How much time will it take to finish this job?”
Me: “About six weeks”
Client: “You have two weeks.”
Me: “OK, I’ll try to explain myself better.”

7 Rules for Creativity Managers – YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/18

Interesting video explaining there is a lot of work to do around me, meaning I probably need more in stead of less people around me (:

  • Nurture diversity: Creativity managers dislike brains being the same.
  • Create markets: Creativity managers favor coopetition in networks.
  • Rely on merits: Creativity managers embrace networks and gameplay.
  • Make no predictions: Creativity managers keep many options open.
  • Update the workplace: Creativity managers work the environment.
  • Change constraints: Creativity managers optimize for exploration.
  • Open boundaries: Creativity managers connect instead of protect.

A load on agility related posts referenced by Markus Eggers – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/13

A while ago, Markus Eggers – Google+ started following me on G+, so I found out about his posts: most of them refer to very useful agility related ones.

So my reading list just got a bit longer, with tuples on Markus Eggers – Google+ and where it points to.

Other interesting posts:

Stop Time Tracking, Start Value Tracking – Agility Scales

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/11

I need to give this some thought: [WayBack] Stop Time Tracking, Start Value Tracking – Agility Scales, via [WayBack] “Most people that I know would rather feel they are getting paid for value. But can we make that value measurable and visible? Let’s try!” – Marjan Venema – Google+.

Time tracking is a pain, but value tracking could be fun!
