Adopting an Agile-Scrum Mindset at Work and Home

shutterstock_250832143_350_croppedGayathri Narayanan, a Senior Technical Consultant at Perficient, has recently started to follow Agile-Scrum principles. As she’s realizing the effectiveness of the practice at work, she’s also taken notice of her more traditional approach to life at home.
She wrote about the dichotomy for Scrum Alliance, a membership organization that encourages and supports the widespread adoption and effective practice of Scrum. There, Gayathri illustrated her personal discovery with family scenarios:

I don’t tolerate changes to plans easily. For example, I don’t tolerate guests showing up during my daughter’s exams or changes to my son’s mealtimes.
I still don’t believe in self-organizing. For example, I continually follow up with my daughter to determine whether she has taken the right books to school according to her schedule, and I try to protect my son from falls too often.

Gayathri further realizes that, as a parent, she’s actually strayed from the more Scrum-like practices of her own parents. As she reflects on her youth, she realizes that her upbringing included many of the very philosophies she’s now learning at work.
