Newsletter: December 2018

Happy Holidays
As 2018 comes to a conclusion, it isn't an end, but a feature released. We constantly refine our product backlog of life, learn new things along the way, and embrace constant feedback from those around us. We are our own product owners, scrum masters and development team members. Some of us naturally align with one of these roles as others slide into the other roles. Sometimes your significant other is the product owner, you are the scrum master and the children are the development team members. Learn from the empirical model - inspect, adapt and be transparent. As I've learned more about scrum, the relationships of those around me have become stronger. Scrum brings value to our workplace and our homes too.
