2013: A Year of Inspect and Adapt

2013

I have never been one for New Years resolutions. I always stood by the fact that one should always be doing what they can to better themselves. However, this past year I dove into Scrum and really tried to embrace the concept of inspect and adapt. This showed me the value and absolute necessity for a time box, though. How can you inspect and adapt your actions without time constraints?

So, here we are. Nothing spectacular. Just honest and doable goals. Start small, I’ll adjust if needed.
