Agile - Slack time – You can’t be productive without it.

August 29, 2013
Slack is a wonderful tool. It helps you meet your commitments and gives you time to perform important, non-urgent tasks that improve your productivity.
Be careful, though. Although slack is a wonderful way to handle transitory problems, it can also disguise systemic problems. If you rely on slack to finish your stories in every iteration, that time isn't really slack—it's required.

Exploration Days

Many organizations struggle with self-education of employees. A very effective way to make learning enjoyable is for people to organize exploration days. Sometimes called hackathons, or ShipIt days, these days are meant to invite employees to learn and develop themselves by running experiments and exploring new ideas, in dedicated timeboxes of 24 hours.
