This is the first video in a new series, Gist Labs’ Experiments in Video.
I’m very happy to be joined by my friend Matt Roberts. Matt is a Senior Director of Software Engineering at CA Technologies and someone I respect as a true leader in addition to being a manager.
The topic for this cast is planning models, and how to arrange a plan either fundamentally in sequence or as a collaboration. This diagrams are essentially the same pictures I’ve drawn on dozens of white boards. Whether it’s work with teams struggling to get done-done within a sprint or programs struggling with cross-team dependencies, the picture is the same every time.
Please watch this short (less than 9 minute) video, share it with those who plan work for themselves or others, and comment on what you like or dislike about these ideas!
(Update: Different link… now with louder volume.)
