Once upon a time, I played the role of ScrumMaster for 2 teams. They allowed my teams to pick between waterfall and agile. Duh, we choose Agile. We were provided with a room that had all the trimmings like wall to wall white boards, a projector and colored index cards. I brought snacks for the room and the beverages were free. The teams even named themselves – Team Ying Yang & Team Destiny. Everything that i asked for was granted.
The interview, whether it is in-person, via the web, or on the phone, is still the most common way of selecting a person for a job. The interviewer or recruiter must make a decision about you in one hour or less. They must assess your ability perform the job and if you are cultural fit for the organization. Your ability to understand their needs and history becomes monumental. However, don’t treat it like a mountain blocking you. It is simply a stepping stone to where you want to go.
Scrum Is In St. Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick died on March 17, 461 and was buried at Downpatrick. On the anniversary of his death, Irish Catholics all remembered his life by going to church and later having a drink of ale.
Happy President’s Day!
Today, we honor all past and present U.S. presidents. Historically, it was established in 1885 to honor one of our great presidents, President George Washington, which was originally celebrated on his birthday – February 22nd and called “Washington Birthday.” You will still hear many in the government call it by that name as well as people who went on before the New Millennium. The 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act changed the date to the third Monday in February. This act was an attempt to create more 3-Day holidays for workers. It now never falls on the actual birthday of any past presidents and usually falls between the birthdays of President Washington and President Lincoln. All that being said, let’s talk about Mr. Washington.
