Five for Friday – November 10

Had my entire team visit me in Seattle (Bellevue) this week, so I’m a little slow on this week’s share.

  • This quote about Agile is something I think I’ll repeat frequently – “Agile is worthless unless it serves as a catalyst for continuous improvement. ” The full article (here) is also worth the read.
  • Twitter appears to have rolled out double-length tweets for everyone. I’m not typically anti-change, and I usually know why I don’t like things – but I’m still pondering why I don’t like this.
  • I’m currently reading Pragmatic Thinking and Learning. It’s been on my about-to-read list for years, and I’m sorry I waited so long to get to it.
  • I found a few leadership gems in this article on Inc.com – most importantly, “Culture comes from what you do, not what you say.
  • I used a Macbook for my last 6 months at Microsoft, but switched back to Windows when I joined Unity. After 9 months of really bad experiences with Windows, I gave up and moved back to a Macbook. It’s been an easy transition, with far fewer (so far) isues.

Leave some words for the weasel
