Some of you might find this funny – and we’re a few days past April Fools so you don’t have to overly offended! This time it’s via Atlassian.
Teaching your children project management and how to do project tracking at home? Why not?
Agile software practices in the home? Sure thing:
What the Starrs did next was surprising. Instead of consulting relatives or friends, they looked to David’s workplace. They turned to a cutting-edge program called agile development that has rapidly spread from manufacturers in Japan to startups in Silicon Valley.
It’s a system of group dynamics in which workers are organized into small teams, hold daily progress sessions and weekly reviews.As David explained, “Having weekly family meetings increased communication, improved productivity, lowered stress and made everyone much happier to be part of the family team.”
When my wife and I adopted the agile blueprint in our own home, weekly family meetings with our then-5-year-old twin daughters quickly became the centerpiece around which we organized our family. The meetings transformed our relationships with our kids—and each other. And they took up less than 20 minutes a week.
Funny. I had never really thought about doing that. I’m not sure my family could survive!
Do any of you guys use agile software practices with your WordPress-related development?
