Practice what you preach

I am a false prophet! God is a superstition! I am a false prophet! God is a superstition! I am a false prophet! God is a superstition! Eli Sunday in "There will be blood"

After working as a Scrum Master and blogging about it I took a small break. I felt like telling the same stories other people were telling but in different words. And those other people told it better ;)

But I didn't have experience in the things I wanted to blog about. I wanted to blog about program management but never have been a program manager. So I couldn't start blogging about the disconnect between management on strategic level and Agile. I only had a one sided view.

I can relate to some views of Jurgen Appelo's Management 3.0book but this was all in the domain I knew. Building web sites or online applications in environments where clients don't know what they want, management can't decide where they want to go.

Now after reading a few months the blog Herding Cats I can relate to Glenn B. Alleman where he warns for "the False Agile Prophets". But in his domain DoD it isn't just realistic to go "Full Agile".

I'm not yet a program manager but I accepted to work as project manager in a relatively unknown domain. I need to be ISAE3402 compliant. But more to come in later blog posts.

In the end it's all about practicing what you're preaching.
