In This Episode…
In this episode I review what I’ve covered this week on the podcast. It has been an exciting week with lots of progress made on moving my productivity forward to even higher levels.
It’s not all been plain sailing though because I wasted and opportunity of Friday and let slip a couple of behaviours I had started. Even so, here’s an overview of some of the things I cover in this episode:
- Time tracking – the principles of how, what and why and the results of two weeks of keeping a detailed time log.
- My Learning From Experience lessons gleaned from the Nuclear and Aviation Industries.
- My first detailed dive into the principles of SCRUM including the principles of sprints, the scrum master, backlogs and reducing waste.
- How I created my first backlog for my project.
- What happened when I let a “Power Day” run away from me.
- And…..I get very excited about the potential of applying SCRUM to my own projects and working with teams.
