Let's get to know you
By what name should I refer to you?

 
Hi {{answer_FDIuZAQoufYo}} Do you have an clear idea of what you want to achieve in the next 2 years?

     
 
{{answer_FDIuZAQoufYo}}, what do you hope to get from a Personal Success Plan

 
How would you describe your current (or last project) you worked on?




 
How would you describe where your team is with Lean Agile & DevOps






 
And yourself, {{answer_FDIuZAQoufYo}}, how is your Lean, Agile DevOps journey







 
Before we begin, {{answer_FDIuZAQoufYo}} a little about your Personal Success Plan (PSP).
It is your guideline to achieve the future you desire.
What you want to achieve
How you add value
How you grow professionally
How you ensure that you are recognised for the value you add.

We help you to both structure your thinking and drive your actions. It is about defining your goals and creating and monitoring a realistic plan.

The context of this PSP is your workplace, the work you do and the broader world of the customer to whom you are responsible for adding value.
 
How do you go about developing your PSP?
Be honest with yourself
Make it truly personal
Align your PSP to both the context of your workplace and to your personal values and desires
Set specific, realistic measurable time driven goals and actions.

Remember with a recipe you “bake the cake”. How you go about this is up to you.
Here are a few tips:
“Buddy Up” - for support and development – choose your gurus, mentors and partners
Stay focussed on results
Be a smart and efficient knowledge sponge.
Take positive action and stick to your plan when you experience fear, uncertainty, indecision and doubt.

This is to remind you who you are. It is about the things you enjoy and things that you are averse to. Keeping to the concept of a recipe. If you don't like chocolate cake
then there is no point in reading chocolate recipes

(are there people who don't eat chocolate?)
 
First part is to discover how you approach other people

Remember be honest with yourself. It is about who you are, not about how you think others expect you to behave
 
In joining a new team. On the first day I would...

 
Someone in the team is messing up the team dynamics. I would...

 
I find myself worrying about how other people feel about me and my work.

 
I keep to myself to the point of been seen as aloof.

 
I am warm; caring; affectionate; tender

All 5 hearts would be living "sharing is caring".
1 heart is for someone more reserved





 
Do managers have a place in the new world of software delivery?

The question is about how you interact with authority (submission levels). I have put the Agile spin of self managing teams
 
I will take my time to explain things again and again.

 
I forward jokes onto everyone I know.

 
Think about how you react to situations at work.

Understanding how you react to situations and people helps you find your Ikigai - "a reason to get up in the morning"
 
Someone in your team has stabbed you in the back. What do you do?

1. Withdraw, feeling hurt
5. I'm sharpening the knife to return it





 
Do you worry about getting things absolutely right?

 
A colleague is telling the stand up that they  had flat tyre Do you...?

 
How do you go about your daily work life

 
There are repeated changes to your place of work. How does that affect your work?

 
Describe your desk




 
Do you have a To Do list?

Quick note - the question is whether you have one, not if you use one
     
 
Would you describe yourself as





 
I have parties in my head about 'the meaning of tingo'






 
Select those that describe your problems solving approach


 
In every day choices, I ....

 
For the big decisions in my life, I...

 
When it comes to trusting people

 
Do you do self-reflection?

     
 
Are you a proud person?






 
At work, when I have a problem to solve I phone a friend

What drives you?


 
What do you want your work to be


 
Your boss says you have done something really well. How do you feel


 
How ambitious are you in your work life?

A reminder to be honest with yourself - especially as the pressure is on for everyone to be adaptable, show support and be the leader of change.
 
LA&D (DevOps) is about self-organised teams. Think carefully about your natural approach to working as a team to deliver software.

When I lead a team, people say I
