While attending the Emerging Technology for the Enterprise conference yesterday, I was talking with a former co-worker of my woes at my current position as a scrum master. I've been feeling nothing but frustrations and fighting an uphill battle for the past few months since I've been hired at a company as a project manager to implement scrum to a company that was no using any formal methodology. He suggested rather than feel frustrated or defeated, think of it as an opportunity to learn and grow. And, he suggested, you should blog about it too. Blog?! I thought...hmmm...wow..what a great idea! To go public and publish what I've been trying and learning; this would help me two-fold. First it would allow me to journal my trials and errors, frustrations, success etc. Second, in addition to helping me, I hope that I can help others that may be in the same situation that I am in.
Anyway, just wanted to get this started. Background info on myself and where I am now on the next few posts. But for now...must think about dinner.
