  1. Define what LPfM is first, in the context of a Lean-Agile transformation or an org mostly demonstrating Lean behavior / Agile behavior 
    1. Is it necessary for every impl. / organization
    2. What size fits? Enterprise? Startups?
  2. Understanding a business’s portfolio(s) relationship between strategy and value streams / mapping
  3. Impediments to implementing LPfM”? 
  4. How to get in front of forecasting with the portfolio coupled with the idea of exploration and validated learning at the highest level in the org.

The third coaching tip vlog. I know I’m not regular. But I do have to learn and practice some time! I’ve almost no feedback so far. I also need ideas to focus on. Lots of stuff I cover as a practitioner doesn’t fit in 2-3 minutes or I can’t talk about it. Appreciated, friends.

VLOG – Coaching Tip #2 – Dealing with Epic Failure

This is my second vlog — ever — and coaching tip of the week. You know, since I didn’t find the time to do one every day. So this one is two minutes, twice my normal intent of one minute quick tips. Enjoy, I hope…

 

First vlog – ever – inspired by Jem + coaching tip

Video Posted on Updated on

So, Jem D’jelal asked, “Would it be more entertaining to see sharing of 10 years worth of ScrumMaster journals as blogs or short vlogs? User feedback please!”

I was inspired by his question this afternoon on the drive home. I thought I’d have a little fun. Share my opinion in an entertaining way and also offer my first ever vlog and coaching tip of the day. Hopefully, I’ll learn something about vlogging.

I have 0.59 seconds into the video, five minutes of editing and uploading, and ten minutes writing this post. I can shrink the time box to ten total minutes I’m sure after a few more experiments.

Now, all I need are IDEAS. Please send the requests and I’ll do my best to give you answers.

Disclaimer: I do not enjoy watching or listening to myself on video. I’m terrified at how all of you will react. I had turned on video capability on my blog months ago. Honestly, I have a lot of fear about doing this. Today, I’m inspired. Thank you Jem.

Here it is… please give feedback. Nicely if possible.
