Fun: Planning your Life with Index Cards

by Deborah Hartmann Preuss on Mar 21, 2007 |
We've all heard the apocryphal stories: "I planned my reno, move, wedding..." using Scrum. Mike Mason of Thoughtworks, on his blog, admitted "this whole Agile thing has messed me right up." It even permeated into his wedding plans. So, for those who wondered, it seems the stories are true: there are folks planning their lives using these same low-tech tools they use at work.

Mason's blog shows us a picture of his own personal taskboard.

Self-coaching by Jens Norin

I think the reason it works so good outside the software business is the self-coaching qualities of Scrum. It creates awareness in a very visible way and it gets things done.

Actually I put together a popular presentation about how to plan your life using Scrum, with the title:
A 942 iteration Scrum project
- a lesson in self-coaching and agile software development -


I've also started to use retrospectives as a coaching tool, which also helps creating awareness.
