LOL, Yep this resonates. I’m happiest when I can take a day with file>open instead of wall of meeting. Addition: “write compelling arguments for improvement recommendations supported by evidence to avoid talking to everyone 1 on 1 because it’s exhausting and hurts my introvert.”

Daniel Cahill - Engineer - Ontario Systems13:10:57

To avoiding the wall of meetings, have you found success with blocking off time and logging out of messaging to free yourself up? Are there better ideas? I have tried a few things without much luck.

Bryan Finster - Defense Unicorns (Speaker)13:10:04

In my current environment I can’t do that. 1. No shared calendar 2. Too many timezones to cover. So, I start work about 90 minutes before my first meeting and do most work then.

Jeffrey Fredrick, Author-Agile Conversations13:10:17

@dacahill7: blocking off time in calendar is one option. Another is a rarely used option: the decline button. It turns out you aren’t required by the laws of physics to accept meeting invites. 🙂

Bryan Finster - Defense Unicorns (Speaker)13:10:42

This is true, except for all of the other meetings in my case. 😕

Bryan Finster - Defense Unicorns (Speaker)13:10:02

However, if you have nothing to add and nothing to learn, do something useful instead.

Daniel Cahill - Engineer - Ontario Systems13:10:44

I remember Jeffrey talking last year about how he would ask if he can leave if he isn't benefitting. I've left a couple meetings early but didn't bring it up in theh conversation.

Jeffrey Fredrick, Author-Agile Conversations13:10:10

Good start! Making it discussable is something I find useful because it can sometimes surface that there is a reason for me to be there, or that other people are expecting something from me that I didn’t realize.

Bryan Finster - Defense Unicorns (Speaker)13:10:52

At the first WM Quality Summit, I talked about testing being for value, not compliance to spec. I included meetings as something that required arrange, act, assert. No agenda? Arrange is missing. Don’t attend No documented actions from the meeting? No assertion. Need meeting retro. 😄

Do you have a preferred place where I can buy & download a DRM free version of the book so I can have it in pdf / eReader format?

You can preorder an ebook edition from your favorite ebook retailer (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc.). The book will officially be released on 11/30/21. We do not offer DRM-free editions of our books.
