The Agile Company is a community of practitioners and thinkers looking for better ways to run business. Join us for an informal exchange among peers to explore … and solve … the challenges of running a modern business.
A recurring theme in my courses is that multitasking is hugely detrimental to personal, team & organizational performance. How detrimental? Well, one of the core messages from my Scrum courses is “Multitasking is evil!” But, you say, multitasking is unavoidable and necessary. It’s not possible to eliminate multitasking. What can I do?
A phase-driven or “waterfall” does in fact require systematic multitasking. In this interactive workshop, we will explore why this is the case, what the side effects are, and show how Scrum is a different architecture for developing software. We’ll do a simple simulation to illustrate the impact of multitasking. Finally, we will create some strategies for reducing multitasking in your actual situation.
