The Time to Change is Now

Recent events have made it clear that the time remaining to save our planet is limited. Somewhat horrifically, a recent Sky Poll discovered that less than half of the UK population are willing to make any of the significant changes to their lifestyles that are needed in order to make a small movement towards carbon neutrality.

Individuals become trapped within the social models and ways of seeing the world that they are used to - it's simple human nature and fundamental to how we learn. If we want to make significant changes to people's lifestyles we must first enable these changes by removing the norms that their rejection to change is based upon.

Brexit from an Agile Perspective

Before I begin I should put my cards on the table clearly. I was (and still am) vehemently a Remain supporter. I also felt that the EU has many problems that need solving. I believed that we were better off steering those changes than walking away from them. I awoke on Friday 24th June to a world that felt just a little bit darker for me. Since then, I've been trying to make sense of the nation's Leave vote in the context of the agile principles and techniques. I think there's a lot here to help us understand why people voted the way that they did and to help guide us through the uncertainty ahead as best as we can, while keeping as positive as possible.

The Value of a Spike

In software development planning practices, a Spike is a time box used to investigate something. This most usually occurs when, while begining to estimate items on the backlog, items are found that contain too many unknowns to estimate. The Spike is created as a piece of work, with an agreed time (or story points value) associated to it which will be spent investigating the problem. The output of the spike will be, in this scenario, a valid estimate for the other piece of work as an approach can then be verified.

Today I was able to qualify the value of this in real money.

Remote working support for You

I am very proud to announce that, as of April this year we have now added another service to our offering - supporting you in implementing remote working for your teams.

The new Remote Control service is now live and, through this, we help to be able to impart the knowledge that we've built up over many years working with / across distributed teams to help other organisations make the transition from expensive, static, office based organisations to dynamic and flexible efficient organisations with remote staff by making use of the best of modern tools.

We hope to continue to evolve the service over the year, adding quick start packs and tech support to help get you set up for remote working as quickly as possible.
