As many of our regular readers know, we are huge fans of Seth Godin. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with his work, Seth is a leader, marketer, and author. You can read more about him here: https://www.sethgodin.com . While never formally identifying himself as an Agilist, Seth very much embodies an Agile mindset.
One of his recent blog entries from March 5, 2022 demonstrates just how much his thoughts align with the philosophy. In this entry entitled, “Show Your Work”, Godin argues that while working for Google or any other of the big names in Tech looks impressive on a resume, it pales in comparison to what you have actually done while in the role. It’s not about whether you worked at Microsoft or Meta, but did you actually produce, did you actually ship the product?
The focus on shipping what is “Done” should sound familiar to anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the philosophy.
