Did your processes become a heavyweight project backpack?
And not a lightweight intrinsic helping approach?

It gets better when processes are designed as requirements.
These requirements can be reused and improved by the projects.
They also can be linked to regulatory or legal requirements.
And they can be united with product requirements for platforms.

Recent Changes and News

  • The next PaR Monthly community event will be on Friday 15th of July - see top of this page.
  • I absolutely enjoyed the Agile Coaching Retreat from Scrum Alliance in Sintra (Lisbon, Portugal) with about 60 experts from Costa Rica, Brazil, USA, Australia and more.
  • Mainly with Lisa Dawson and Alexander Kylburg I worked out a coaching decision tree for helping executives (managers, leaders) to understand and support agile approaches.
  • This decision tree will become a standard Scrum Alliance tool and I will adopt it for PaR to help executives to understand and support PaR in their company.
  • Also, driving 3000 km to Lisbon and 3000 km back with my Tesla Model S and also sleeping in that car with my Dreamcase was a real pleasure - and with A/C convenient as well.
  • Hold mouse for title and then click to enlarge:

  • The next PaR Monthly community event will be on Wednesday 15th of June - feel free to join because it is free ;-)
  • Thanks to Martin I will present PaR on the event "Agile PEP 2022" on 28th of November 2022, focusing on becoming agile with processes.
  • Looking forward to be in Sintra (Lisbon, Portugal) 24th-26th this month.
  • The PaR Monthly community event was on a Sunday (15th) - therefore I only sent short notice on LinkedIn on Friday afternoon.
  • Well, 144 persons saw it, but nobody joined in. But we also had nice weather and it was election day. Fair enough!
  • I met Martin from Fraunhofer IESE personally in Schengen to prepare for ESE 2022 conference.
  • We also prepared a master's thesis for someone - based on PaR.
  • We skip the April Monthly community event, because the 15th is Easter Good Friday.
  • I will be at the Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreat in Lisbon (Portugal) 24.-26.June.2022.
  • Advertising the March Community Monthly session on LinkedIn and XING.
  • The homepage now shows the next Monthly with the corresponding links.
  • I further improved the page "About us" from the last Monthtly.
  • Based on the feedback from the invitations for the Monthly, I renamed this page here from "Introduction" to "Welcome" and further simplified it.
  • The presentation held at ESE is now available from the PaR YouTube Channel (see page "The Videos"). It is a German studio pre-recording (not live from the conference).
  • While establishing the Monthly PaR event I hear the question what the idea behind the PaR Community is. Therefore, I have added this question to the FAQ page.
  • The page "About us" is updated for the new monthly community session and the invitation email is referencing it; if you want to join, then just let me know.
  • The tool booklet "PaR - for Polarion" is now available for download from the "Downloads" page for free - thanks to Martin Becker and Max Schmitt from Fraunhofer IESE.
  • The presentations held at ReConf (English only) and ESE (English and German) are available for Download now - enjoy!
  • "The Presentations" and "The Videos" are now separate pages which makes sense because not every set of slides will be shown as video and not every video will show slides.
  • We are planning a revival of the PaR community session, on a monthly base, every 15th, with many interesting people in the style of a Lean Coffee session in Miro.
  • The former weekly community session now is reduced to an inner circle of the few really active people: Martin Becker, Bernhard Doleschel and me.
  • Friendly reminder: If you want a current PDF of my draft of The Book, then just tell me!
  • I got some reactions from the REConf, re:work and ESE conferences in fact. Interesting people from interesting companies. Do the digital conferences still make sense after all?
  • Another "PaRdemic" year - with PaR and the Corona Omikron pandemic, or with PaR becoming pandemic ;-)
