I support Uber in Victoria! An open letter to the Victorian Minister of Transport

Donnerstag, den 29. Januar 2015

For those of you who don’t know it yet: Taxi service in Melbourne is atrocious. Many drivers are inexperienced, misogynistic, have mental issues and are outright dangerous. The State of Victoria has not yet found a way to deal with this, but they have their own Wikipedia page on the issue, which is worth calling […]

Continuous Discovery whilst getting things done? Have you tried “Dual Track Scrum” yet?

Donnerstag, den 9. Oktober 2014

On my recent project ventures I was wondering how a traditional scrum team can keep delivering whilst having an ongoing stream of real customer insights and discovery. I stumbled across Dual Track Scrum, let me know what you think!
Dual Track Scrum is an emerging concept to improve the velocity of actual value delivered. Basically it’s […]

It’s not a “showcase” it is a “review” - (ad)ventures in scrum

Dienstag, den 8. Juli 2014

Recently I got involved in a new Agile project. And when I say “recently” I mean last year, and when I say “involved” I mean whoah! what a journey so far!

Scrumming along
We are running a scrum project and I’d […]

How I started my first (well, third if you’re particular about it) Sitecore CMS project..
I just tried installing Web Forms for Marketers. You know, another form builder. That one thing that every CMS has on offer (or should have) to quickly patch together a basic form.

DiBella Coffee - Excellent australian customer service

Montag, den 25. Januar 2010

I love coffee, I crave it. A day in Melbourne without coffee for the average Melbournian is like a day without synchronizing swatches for Parker Lewis. I don’t talk about this bitter mish-mash that we drink in German offices everyday allover the country. THAT I have to tell you is gross compared what the coffee […]

Samstag, den 23. Januar 2010

Customer Service in australia? - Ha! I thought during the last 12 months that the Germans are super special über-spoiled when it comes to customer service. Australia is a customer service desert - I had to learn it the hard way.
On the list of uncool, mean, evil and bad to worst customer service ever:

My latest project is now online and works just fine. The website of the HLRS - "High performance computing center Stuttgart" has been redesigned(not by me) and relaunched/reprogrammed(by me) to replace the old non-accessible table-based layout.
After the planned short setup phase for the main project the development of single requirements where defined, implemented, tested and [...]
