Here are three valuable ideas from the Romanian PMDay event, that took place May 26, 2010 in Bucharest:
1. SCRUM: I was familiar with SCRUM before and I have partially apply it; anyway this presentation was a good reminder that I lost sight of the benefits of Agile. I decided to be more active about bringing Agile in the organization I work for, as I did with my previous employer. (Stephen Forte, Scrum Master)
Here is a nice picture of Agile vs Waterfall, coauthored by myself and my former colleague Dorian (thanks!):
2. Fresh blood is not sufficient to bring change in the organization. Nor is sufficient for those that adopted old habits to get out of the way, "they must die". Touche! (Velimir Srica)
3. It appears that I and the Croatian collegue Velimir also agree on a number of other things: "Hire people with attitude" (my Linked In profile was saying a couple of days ago "Honoria is hiring a Project Manager with attitude"); and "if I get three valuable ideas from a presentation, and as knowledge accumulates maybe even one, I am happy". Herethey are: three valuable ideas from PMday.
