This year seems to be flying by and I haven’t gotten back on track with my book. Like a previous post it is hard to get that initiative going.
Work was probably the biggest blocker over the past six months. In technology change is inevitable and if you are unable to handle it things can go sideways fast.
One of the good things that happened was I revamped an SDLC and provided additional help for Product Development. I did a lot of research by articles, books and YouTube. Speaking of YouTube I would like to get back to normal use and see dogs do silly things.
Some of the great reads I had were:
Sprint: Solve big problems and test new ideas in just 5 days by Jake Knapp
User Stories Applied by Mike Cohn
Agile at work by Douglas rose
Still going through more books to help gain even more knowledge to help organizations succeed.
There were countless YouTube videos that were hit or miss. The joys of the internet. There was one video that hit me hard with moving in a direction to create a more innovative environment:
This talk turned on a light bulb and brought things that I was working on into a new light. Things started to click and fall into place.
Next week I will be finally taking some well deserved time off and will spend time on my book. So I will be dusting off my outline, what was written before and more than likely making changes with what I know now.. Looking forward to it.
