Agile Manifesto - An Interpretation

As we know, Manifesto for Agile Software Development cites. We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more. Agile techniques place a high focus on cooperation, collaboration, and excellent communication between those involved in the software development process. Although protocols and technologies are required, the emphasis is on enabling people to collaborate effectively. So people makes an impact, not the process and tools used, a simple white board is enough if we have a great team, right? Agile development approaches place a higher priority on producing functional, usable software than lengthy documentation. The f

Student Syndrome, Parkinson's Law, Self-Protection, and Sandbagging

Facing challenges like Student Syndrome, Parkinson's Law, Self-Protection, and Sandbagging in our team?  🚀 Here's a quick quality check on these issues: 1️⃣ Student Syndrome (Planned Procrastination): You or the team delay doing project activities until right before the deadline. This name came about due to the typical behavior of a student who delays studying until the last days before exams. When a project starts, team members often start off casually, intensifying their efforts as the project deadline approaches. It is because people keep postponing important tasks until they become urgent. This often results in a less than satisfactory outcome due to a lack of time and focus. Contingency is wasted, and risk is increased and puts the team under stress and pressure. 2️⃣ Parkinson's Law (Time Expansion): People allow work to expand to fill the time allotted. For eg: if you assign a task at 9 am and ask someone to submit it by 6 pm, they might take the full 9 to 6 (9 hours

Let's think about tomatoes instead of hours. Sounds funny?

(ð—Ģð—žð—šð—žð—ąð—žð—ŋ𝗞 means 𝘁𝗞𝗚ð—Ū𝘁𝗞 in Italian. 🍅) This well-liked time management approach suggests you switch between pomodoros - concentrated work sessions - and short breaks often to keep up focus and avoid mental tiredness. Francesco Cirillo, a student, developed the Pomodoro Technique in the late 1980s. He was having trouble focusing on his studies and finishing tasks. Feeling overwhelmed, he challenged himself to just 10 minutes of focused study time. Motivated by the challenge, he found a tomato shaped kitchen timer, and that's how the technique started. 1️⃣ 𝗠ð—Ūð—ļð—ē ð—Ū 𝘁𝗞-ð—ąð—ž ð—đð—ķ𝘀𝘁 ð—Ūð—ŧð—ą ð—īð—ē𝘁 ð—Ū 𝘁ð—ķ𝗚ð—ēð—ŋ. 2️⃣ ð—Ķð—ē𝘁 𝘁ð—ĩð—ē 𝘁ð—ķ𝗚ð—ēð—ŋ ð—ģ𝗞ð—ŋ ðŸŪðŸą 𝗚ð—ķð—ŧ𝘂𝘁ð—ē𝘀, ð—Ūð—ŧð—ą 𝗰𝗞ð—ŧ𝗰ð—ēð—ŧ𝘁ð—ŋð—Ū𝘁ð—ē 𝗞ð—ŧ 𝗞ð—ŧð—ē 𝘁ð—Ū𝘀ð—ļ 𝘂ð—ŧ𝘁ð—ķð—đ 𝘁ð—ĩð—ē
