FAQs

Pragmatism (1)

As long as the team is still preoccupied with “methodologies”, the answer is yes.

Afterwards, it’s no.

Let me elaborate. After three decades of work in the software business, I still haven’t seen a scientifically solid proof that any methodology yields better results than any other, at least in the majority of all circumstances, in the average. As a matter of fact, I’m reading related studies just because I have to and because my clients keep asking me about them. For every published study you can find another one allows for contradicting conclusions.

At the same time I’ve experienced a lot of teams that were successful because they believed in their way of doing things, which made them walk the extra mile whenever necessary. It didn’t really matter whether officially, they claimed to be a lean team, or an agile or a traditional one.

My conclusion: as a coach, I will passionately support people who belive in the same values and principles like I do. I will leave proselytism to others and trust the the course of history will teach everybody the right lessons.

My Services (3)

Short answer: no, and you need to pay me only when you’re satisfied.

Longer answer: I’m used to investing a lot of time upfront to figure out with you where you want to go, and whether my services will actually help you and push you forward towards your goals.

So, all I’m asking for is: please give me a chance to find out what for you’dĀ  like to change something. Please give me a little context, even if you think it’s not yet your definite answer.

I don’t know. Let’s talk about it and figure out whether you’ll pay me for coaching your teams, or I’ll pay you for a little time I can spend with your teams, to learn from them. I’m serious.
