As the President of The Braintrust Consulting Group and as a Project Management Futurist, Brian Rabon is a leading expert on Agile. This month, he loaned his expertise to Better Software Magazine by writing an article entitled “Being Agile, Even If My Organization Isn’t”.
In this article, Brian takes a closer look at what it truly means to be agile and explores the concept of personal agility. As part of his examination of personal agility, Brian explains the seven facets of achieving personal agility and provides a list of questions to ask yourself in a personal retrospective.
Regardless of whether agile is being adopted at your workplace, Brian points out that you can become more agile yourself. By conducting frequent personal retrospectives you can fuel your personal and career growth. You can form meaningful relationships with coworkers in order to focus on your strengths and shore up your weaknesses. And you can learn to work at the right times in order to be most productive.
