Stop starting, start finishing – for real!

Catching up and warming up after the break… Yesterday it has been exactly three months since I wrote my last blogpost here on ‘Harvest, rest and celebrate… and possibly take some writing pause’. I wanted to be serious with ‘(stop starting,) start finishing’ – I really took the writing pause – and I’ve been successfull […]

Harvest, rest and celebrate…

… and possibly take some writing pause The last weeks were just crazily filled with learning, travelling, conferences, more people work, studying… and living. The little space inbetween I tried to use for resting – even if that meant breaking my rhythm to blog at least once a month. Harvest! As I really want to […]

Agile Austria 2018 in Graz

A personal review and some (speaker’s) impressions As part of the review team I was already being involved for quite some time with Agile Austria. Now in May 2018 the time to actually travel to Graz had finally come. After some days of holiday in Vienna I arrived in the beautiful city of Graz – […]

Day Parenting

One game to CTRL the Shift… This year in February I attended Play4Agile again. Some time after this unconference I stumbled upon the book ‘CTRL Shift’ by Mike Bonifer and Jessie Shternshus. Udo Wiegärtner and Adrian Suciu held one session at #p4a18 about unlearning and about this book. Of course, I immediately ordered it and […]

Scrum Master in Disguise

Impressions from the Product Owner Camp 2017 in Frankfurt Last week I spent two awesome days together with two of my colleagues in Frankfurt attending the 2nd Product Owner (PO) Camp. I had to wear this fancy lanyard which labelled me a “Product Owner” (even though I currently work in the role of a Scrum […]

The final disruption

Gedanken zum Umgang mit Tod & Trauer (in Teams) mit Elementen aus der Positiven Psychologie (Zeichung von Reinald Kirchner; Foto von Cosima Laube) Der Start auf der Play4Agile Ich bin immer wieder sehr positiv überrascht, wieviel Offenheit und Vertrauen in vermeintlich kurzer Zeit entstehen kann, wenn der passende Rahmen besteht und Menschen mit kompatiblen Wertesystemen […]

OOP2017 – Details matter

My personal (short) review Being at OOP 2017 in Munich was a great experience – not just because I had the chance to speak there and share my thoughts on softskills for tech people with my session on ‘interhuman debugging’ (in German). Of course, speaking at OOP was a great experience on its own. Being […]

Zwischenmenschliches Debugging

Kommunikationsüberwachung mal anders tag: [communication, coaching, zwischenmenschliches, debugging, public speaking, OOPmuc, (un)conferences, oop2017] Unser menschliches Gegenüber ist wie eine undokumentierte Thirdparty-Library: Wir müssen erst herausfinden, wie er/sie „tickt“, um zusammenarbeiten zu können. Und selbst bei bekannten Libraries gibt es immer wieder Überraschungen. Mit manchen Zeitgenossen geht Zusammenarbeiten besser, mit anderen weniger gut. Woran liegt das? […]
