Trust the bike

A while ago I read a parody of the Agile Manifesto at a Agile Coach Gathering.  Myself and other coaches laughed about this. It is often that when agile coaches meet that we laugh about things. And sometimes we cry a little. We laugh because somethime this is the only logical thing to do. We …

Kids stuff

aidan

My son is eight, nearly nine. And  probably like most kids of his age he doesn’t like to do his homework. He likes to play videogames and watch tv in stead and I try to keep this to a minimum and to let him also do the important things. So I was looking for a …

Holistic Agile

gently-gently-catchy-monkey

I’m a big fan of Douglas Adams. As a child I was listening to the Hitchhikers Guide tot the Galaxy radio play on my small radio at night and later I read all the books. The idea that if you think live is strange, in fact in real live it is much stranger is very …

How to get to the moon

GPN-2001-000014

De schommel

4086378332_522d03b9b2

In de tuin hangt een schommel. Een hele oude schommel. Het touw is bijna vergaan. De verf op het plankje is gaan bladderen. En de boom waaraan de schommel hangt is oud.

Bescherm tegen uitsterven

26862_107576275947877_105269252845246_53888_4874029_n

Veel bedrijven zijn bang. Heel erg bang. De mensen die er werken verstoppen zich voor de grote dreiging. Een dreiging die we denk ik allemaal wel herkennen. De grote gevaarlijke opdrachtgever. Uit angst voor wat er misschien kan gebeuren houden veel bedrijven ze zoveel mogelijk weg van alles. Maar is die angst wel gegrond. Is …
