Fun stuff like timesheets and?

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

It’s hard to miss Apple’s new advertising campaign.  One of the recent editions really caught my attention.  The PC was describing the "fun stuff" he can perform, and he mentioned "timesheets". Of course this is completely tongue-in-cheek.
Timesheets are not fun.  It’s interesting that of all the "un-fun" things a PC can do, Apple chose to [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/586">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Why Flow Time is Valuable

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

At 6th Sense Analytics we have 2 essential data types that represent team effort: Active Time and Flow Time. You can get a good definition of each in our glossary, but simply consider Active Time to represent all work time and Flow Time to represent immersion or focused time.
I think every software engineer understands intuitively [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/579">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

6th Sense Analytics: Helping your development team to help you

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

There’s something really weird about being a member of the IT industry and going to a conference that feels the need to discuss the importance of “innovation.” I’ve always believed a fundamental acceptance in the concept of innovation was table stakes for this game.
Apparently not, though, if the level of discussion at [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/589">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Applying Flow Time - What to Consider?

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

This post will focus on 3 uses for Flow Time within software teams –

Adapting project and team work flow
Virtual team analysis and adjustment
Focusing specific, high impact engineers towards project challenges

The first consideration for me in Flow Time is adjusting my overall oject dynamics to create increased flow periods within the work week. [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/580">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

I?m sorry to interrupt?

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

I watched this great video of Jason Fried who is the CEO of 37Signals. He was at the Collaborative Technologies Conference and talked about several "unconventional" ideas. The one idea he talked about that really stood out for me was how interruptions kill productivity, it breaks the Flow. Jason talked about other interesting topics but [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/587">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Who's that guy?

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

About two and a half years ago at my previous job, I was promoted to Group Product Manager in charge of all product management. One week later we had an all-hands meeting where the development group was left with many questions about the future. No one from the senior management team was eager to stand [...]<div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/588">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Slack Time

by Michael Faisst In reply to 6th Sense Analytics

In an earlier post I mentioned the book Slack as a reference point behind Flow Time. In this post, I want to expand on that a bit more because Slack Time is actually a construct that crosses Active & Flow Time and I think it’s an important concept to consider within your teams.
 
In Slack, Tom [...]<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.6thsenseanalytics.com/archives/581">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
