Things are pretty crazy at work – we are going through some growing pains in a new project and things are hectic from a PM perspective as a result. It’s great experience on how to manage rapidly changing requirements as well as an opportunity to learn more about new methodologies. A big part of the stress is coming from my groups conversion to the Scrum methodology.
So far I like Scrum, and will be interested to see how things turn out. It seems much more focused on getting rapid results than waterfall and suits my personality better. I like being able to work through issues in real time (so to speak) and focusing on delivering features rather than documentation. I’ll be interested to see what my take away lessons from Scrum are after we have gone through a few sprints and I feel more confident and educated about the process.
Luckily the week is over half over. Last weekend I didn’t get much ‘me’ time between visiting my grandpa and getting my car taken care of so I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time with my couch this coming Saturday and Sunday.
