Attempting to shoehorn such an inflexible concept into Complicated and Complex environments isn’t just unhelpful. It is damaging.
I had never heard of Cynefin before, but it’s a great perspective, and I love that it accounts for chaotic and complex environments. That is very rarely acknowledged, at least in regards to making a process work. Most of the time, an ideal environment is used for whatever the process you are describing.
Make a gratitude list by the water cooler
Those “gratitude” and “happiness” lists that sometimes do the rounds on Facebook might be annoying to some people, but psychologists say they do work. Employees who regularly recounted three positive events at work over a six-week period and shared them with colleagues made people happier than those who merely listed work tasks
Im not sure why this surprises me, but it absolutely does…I would have thought it would lead to the reverse, but hey, the psycho-folks say it works!
I don’t think testers should write automation.
Very interesting perspective on automation…
Retrospectives are like Honey Badger. They don't give a shit. Retros help you do what you do better. If you're doing evil, they still help.
