Why is this still a thing? (Unless you actually have a meeting at 9AM… which changes the context)
I find it fascinating that in many corporate contexts that: conformity equates to productiveness (in terms of perception).
This is not true.
In Agile, our most powerful evidence of effort is delivery.
Don’t miss this point. Almost nothing else matters.
- Sign Offs
- Productivity metrics
- Performance metrics
- Pie charts
I could go on and on… but none of that matters.
Ask yourself a powerful question.
Would you rather tell your leadership/CEO/executive/manager that:
“We are working hard.”
“We have delivered something, would you like to review it?”
Delivery is everything. Progress means nothing. Deliver fast. Validate your assumptions fast.
