Hi Bart,
thank you very much for your invitation. I'm happy to be your friend.
It was great to meet you in Bucharest and I enjoyed the moments we had together.
I still keep the certificate of the SOL conference which you wrote for me. Thanks.
Have a wonderful day, Julia

I and my colleagues plan coming to Texel, now going for flight reservation, etc.
Would you please answer to Qs for me:
- what is the best way to get to Texel

Thank you,

Sounds like the problem that we have with our development teams as well - they are not commited to one project but many and have to do maintainance work on top of that.
We discuss whether it would be helpful to have less task switching, be more focused on finishing a high priority tasks first before starting something else. Do you think that could help?
Best regards Josef

Hi Bart,

you wrote:
coming week I will be delivering a training on SF project management to managers of a social workers' organisation. I would really like to introduce them to the idea of scrum. Do you have any ideas on introductory exercises, games, gimmicks?

59 minutes scrum is a standard excercise, scrum like project simulation. You will find lots of presentations on this in google.

Hope this helps!

I'm really would like to learn more from your LF aproach to project management!




Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
