Cool stuff: Different Work | Your Big Adventure | The Fish Pond
During all this I was tracking 129 blogs (I cleaned up the list). In March 2009 I found the following postings highly remarkable and interesting…
One Model for a New World Economy @ OpenTheFuture
If you want to read a posting reflecting my current line of thinking (about projects and organizations) I recommend this great piece:
“Decentralized diversity (what we sometimes call the “polyculture” model) means setting the rules so that no one institution or approach to solving a problem/meeting a need ever becomes overwhelmingly dominant. This comes at a cost to efficiency, but efficiency only works when there are no bumps in the road. Redundancy works out better in times of chaos and uncertainty — backups and alternatives and slack in the system able to counter momentary failures.”

Stumbling Through Mediocrity @ James Shore
“I wasn’t really being asked “Does Agile scale?” … What I was really being asked was, “Does Agile work in large, dysfunctional organizations? Can I keep doing all of the ineffective things I’m required to do and still say I’m Agile?”
And BTW… Thank you so much for reading my blog. Really. Thank you.
