Critical Mass

On agile values coming to life – yes, life, for real! Imagine someone having a clear vision – a vision no smaller than saving the planet.

Trials over experiments – Or: a fool with a tool is still…

… a fool? Yesterday I felt triggered to state my opinion on personality tests (again). On twitter. Other people’s answers triggered more and broader thinking on this in me.
