What I love
  • Solving problems (human, technical, managerial, political)
  • Being a part of a cross-functional team and pairing with people
  • Leading through coaching
  • Innovating through trial and error
  • Writing software through BDD/TDD (production code, infrastructure code)
  • Debugging software
  • Sharing what I know, or have recently learned
  • Advising and interacting with CIOs, CTOs, CEOs about strategy and technology
  • Managing product development by planning and implementing MVPs (You write it, you run it!)
  • Managing software development by good story writing practices and Kanban
  • Dynamic reporting using visual guides
  • Running inceptions
  • Giving presentations and running workshops; blogging
  • Buying healthy snacks for the team
What bores me:
  • Fighting corporate red-tape
  • Using tickets to interact with people
  • Reporting status and sitting in status meetings
  • Sitting in meetings where people continuously avoid saying “yes”.
  • Not having end-to-end control of the process
  • Working with people who think it’s about them and disregard the goal
  • Working with people who do not want to try new things or take risks
  • Following a process without being able to influence it
  • Not being trusted by my managers
