Project Management and Homebrewing: Enjoy the process

“Inspect and adapt” is a familiar mantra in agile software development, which is about building a flexible process that anticipates and embraces change. Many of the things I enjoy about product management are related to building and adapting processes based on what is going well and what could be improved. In my role at BoardEffect, I immediately noticed a correlation between my work as a project manager and how I approach some of my non-work pursuits, in particular, homebrewing. I initially got into brewing simply because I liked beer and I wanted to learn more about how to make it, but it quickly spiraled into obsessing over how to improve the beer I was making, how to change the process based on which style I wanted to make, and how to troubleshoot off-flavors. I don’t homebrew because it’s cost-effective, because I don’t have access to unique beers, or even because it’s that fun (it’s a lot of sanitizing). It’s really all about the process.

Why your BoardEffect Platform may need some spring cleaning

Why is it that stuff seems to multiply and accumulate during the winter? On the kitchen counter.  On the shelf in the living room.  What is all that junk?  Who brought it in the house?  Maybe it is our nesting instinct? Good News: Spring is upon us and with Spring comes the urge to open the windows and the desire to declutter.

That inclination pertains to one group of people more than another.  Are you a thrower or a saver?  Here is a cautionary tale with a seasonally appropriate solution.
