This week I was on-boarded to Agile .... Yay! I'm going to be more productive!
So the next day....
I spent an hour trying to add my epic's and tasks
I spent another 1.5 hours attending meetings for the 3 boards I'm on where we all talked about....seemingly....the 12 steps to curing our problems
I then spent another hour on regular meetings for things not yet Agile....get with it people!! Don't you know that you are holding me back?
But wait...! My epics have no components!! Oh no!! Call the scrum masters, call the Agile teams, its an EMERGENCY
At the end of the day I spent an hour updating my tasks and subtasks with what I'd done...and yes you guessed it, I listed "attended meetings"
The next day was more of the same, and I thought OK, I can get used to this
Now I'm a Wh-z at Agile, I spend my whole day finding more things to add to the board
I've been told "atta boy, you are doing great!"
Whatever I was hired for, seems so old and obsolete now, my whole existence is spent on my Agile boards, thinking up new stuff to put in and its great
Meeting - check. Close out task.
Phone call - check. Close out task.
Make coffee - check. Close out task.
Chat with cube neighbor - check. Close out task.
Call boss and inform how many tasks I'm working - check. Close out task.
Bathroom break - check. Close out task. Er, ok scratch that one......
Wow the time flies, the day's over....can't wait for tomorrow and the new tasks I'm going to create!!!!!
I love Agile!!!!
