7 Effective Ways to Waste Time
This talk is about the best and effective practices to waste your own time and the time of your team members. I tried most of the practices myself to deliver a first hand experience. In various projects and uncountable discussions developers volunteered to contribute their own ideas to the topic.
Opportunities to waste time can be found in various agile disciplines like leadership, communication, backlog items, coding, meetings and various process steps. This talk provides ideas to identify the opportunities and helps to improve the skills to waste time on the way to mastery.
Those who want to follow the lean principle of avoiding waste can benefit from this talk by simply identifying and not applying the practices described.
