RE: [scrumdevelopment] Personal Scrum Process?
- Me too...
I've been using GTD for a couple of years now but I've recently added "BurnDown Task Estimates" to help organize & manage my daily tasks and activities. If I end up with more than about 4-5 estimated hours in a day I know that I'll need to renegotiate with the PO (me <grin>).
I've also been enjoying Mike Cohn's concept of mini-sprints... 20-30 min focused work time...no interruptions of any kind allowed (except the burning building kind)... I use a little desktop timer... definitely helps get and keep traction...
At the end of each day I prep for tomorrow and at the beginning of each day I reprioritize my existing tasks and then start my serial sprints...
Works better for me than anything else I've tried....
YMMV (your mileage may vary)...
Keep Breathing. Tell the Truth. Be Fearless. Choose Love.

I use a BurnDown for my weight loss goals and I plan to do monthly retrospectives on why things went how they did and what can be improved. :O)

David Allen's "Getting Things Done" seems to philosophically align with
scrum. It's a system of personal organization that has at its heart
managing lists which are analagous to a product backlog, and each week
ends with a review that is akin to the scrum review. It is a system that
appears to be gaining rapid popularity with geeks and techies.
