The Software Process and Measurement Cast 617 features our essay on rediscovering productivity. One of the tools I have embraced is Pomodoro. It is a great approach to staying focused and helps unwonkify time in my home office!
Also this week, Susan Parente brings her “Not A Scrumdamentalist” column to the Software Process and Measurement Cast! Susan begins a three-part series on grateful leadership. Grateful leadership is so much more than just saying thank you.
In between the essay and Susan’s column, we have a promo for the Agile Online Summit 2020.

Chapter 15 of Tame your Work Flow, introduces the concept of a MOVE, which stands for Minimal Outcome-Value Effort. Steve and Daniel use the construct to help define an atomic level of value delivery that is both minimalistic and sufficient. MOVE, while not replacing the myriad Mxx acronyms (e.g. minimal viable product or minimal marketable product), it provides a mental model for defining items in your portfolio backlog that is focused on throughput accounting.
