"Be the author of your life and write your story forward."--J.D. Meier

In 'Getting Results the Agile Way,' author J.D. Meier introduces Agile Results®-a simple system for meaningful results! It's a systematic way to achieve both short- and long-term results in all aspects of your life-from work to fun. It offers just enough planning to get you going, but makes it easy to change your course as needed. It also provides fresh starts for your day, week, month, and year. Even if you already use another time management system, Agile Results can supplement it to increase your impact and sense of fulfillment.

In today's world, change happens quickly; learn how to be flexible and responsive to new opportunities. Don't just check off tons of stuff from your to-do list; do the things that make a difference. Stop trudging your way through life; bolster your energy with habits that will carry you forward each day. Quit sacrificing your personal life for your work life (or vice versa); give each facet of your life its due and find balance. In other words, learn the skills to go the distance in an ever-changing world.

The beauty of Agile Results is that you don't have to adopt the entire system to see the benefits; just start with the following three basic tenets. First, adopt The Rule of 3 and you avoid being overwhelmed and become mindful of your results. Second, adopt the Monday Vision, Daily Outcomes, Friday Refection pattern and you set the wheels in motion for weekly results while giving yourself a fresh start each day and each week. Third, set up boundaries for your Hot Spots and begin to experience work-life balance. When you're ready for more, flip through the chapters to learn how to use stories to design your day, week, month, and year; how to find your motivation; how to improve your productivity; and many more.

Agile Results is a time-tested system that J.D. Meier has honed through his years at Microsoft: learning from some of the best minds, leading virtual teams, and mentoring people around the world. It is a system he can bet on time and again. This guide is the playbook for getting results that he wishes somebody had given to him so many years ago. Now, he's sharing it with you.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch bietet wertvolle Hinweise wie man seine Zeit besser in den Griff bekommt in dem es den "Wert" einer Aufgabe in den Vordergrund stellt anstatt die pure Anzahl der zu erledigenden Dinge.

Es versucht bekannte Prozesse aus der Software Entwicklung auf das alltägliche Leben zu projizieren. Das gelingt auch sehr gut. Es ist kein ultimative Master-Plan bietet aber viele Anreize aus denen man wählen kann um sein persönliches Zeit Management zu erstellen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gute Zusammenfassung 5. Juni 2013
Von S. Dau
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wer Agile Software-Entwicklung kennt und mag, wird sich ohnehin dabei ertappen, seinen Aufgaben nach Wertigkeit und Nutzen zu sortieren und sie so strukturiert und ergebnisorientiert anzugehen.
Das Buch fasst diese Prinzipien gut für Alltägliches zusammen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great ideas for Overplanners! 26. Januar 2011
Von A. Dial - Veröffentlicht auf
Excellent advice for someone like me that is an "Overplanner". (I'd rather over-plan something than actually do it.) I have to admit that I had to restart the book three times and really read what he was saying. The writing is not the best and it is full of repetition, but it was worth it to finish the book to the end. I'd say it is one of those "Ah ha!" books with simple ideas you will use the rest of your life--even though you thought you were going about your life and projects the correct way. This is a book I would recommend to any person--it's not just about work, it's about how you go about your life. Excellent ideas. I would also recommend reading the David Allen "Getting Things Done" series as a companion to this book. With The Agile Way and "GTD" systems, I have achieved more this month than I have in the past year!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The beauty and power of JD's method is in simplicity 8. Oktober 2010
Von Kevin Lam - Veröffentlicht auf
If you compare JD's methods to many others, the biggest thing that jumped out for me was the simplicity of JD's methods. His methods are so simple that really anyone can start using them today -- which means you'll start seeing incremental results fast. I also enjoyed how quickly JD gets down to business -- you won't find filler text or have to navigate several chapters first like you see in other books. Even if you take just one thing out of this book (I recommend the "Monday Vision, Daily Outcomes, and Friday Reflection" if you had to pick just one) you will see results.

So it boils down to this: Anyone can want to get results, but if you want to see them actualized then get this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A fine system for people with lives much like the author's 21. Januar 2013
Von H Waterhouse - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is very fractal. It introduces a concept and then circles back to it a couple times in increasing depth. It's a logical structure, but you end up feeling like you've read everything a couple times. Perhaps this is better for readers who skim.

My other overall comment is that most productivity systems written out of software make me resentful because they assume that my home-life schedule is something that can be managed. I think I speak for a lot of working parents when I say that my schedule is something that I manage the same way surfers manage waves.

Useful concepts I will take from this book:
Outcomes, not activities. You don't want to be doing something, you want a finished product to show for your work. Write your tasks to reflect that.
Fix time, flex scope. You have the time you have. Instead of changing that, change how much you are trying to get done in that time.
Use your vision of the end result to drive your motivation and self-analysis.
Don't wait for inspiration. Even uninspired work is more useful than nothing.
Pretend to think like someone else to work your way through problems you are stuck on. Pick problem-solving heroes and ask yourself what they would do in a similar situation.
Work from an abundance mentality. Instead of assuming there is only so much of anything to go around, ask yourself how you could make more.
Growth feels awkward.

Things I could have lived without:
I thought that even for the structure of the book, there was a lot of repetition.
I found the emphasis on exercise and diet pretty ableist. Not everyone can "work out to maintain their health".
I was completely vexed by the assumption that emotional work was a knowable obligation. That may be true for other people, but I think that system would come up against a lot of grief given one week with kids who have the flu. To me, emotional work is much more interrupt-based, and when it's happening, it's the thing that's blocking everything else.

Read if: You are looking for a way to think about organizing and timeboxing yourself that is derived from Agile development methods. There is a lot to be gained from some of the concepts presented here.

Skip if: You will feel angry at a book that assumes you are in charge of your time allocation. You are not feeling patient about repetition.

Also read: Cheaper By the Dozen for another way to think about time use.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential processes for work and life 17. September 2012
Von Montra - Veröffentlicht auf
First off, the one dread about taking time off is knowing you'll need to dig yourself out of emails and catching up on projects. I was able to read this awesome book while on vacation and surprisely, by just applying a few key steps even just in the beginning of the book, it really made a difference in the week that I came back.
I was more motivated because I identified my 'power hours' and the times of day that I'm more focused without scheduling meetings on top of those. I set clearer boundaries for work and life, so even though I was catching up, I wasn't cramming in so much that my personal life was suffering (keeping the balance and not taking extra from another priority).
This book came at just the right time for me. Not only do I know how to approach busy weeks systematically but thoroughly, I'm more accomplished and feel complete in my final deliveries. You can't get more time in the day, but at least you can use your time wisely without letting it fly away.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent book and adaptation of Agile for Personal Results. 24. Dezember 2013
Von Sachmo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is one of those rare books that both explains a concept well and provides an extremely actionable system to actually put the ideas in action.

Let me take a step back - 'Agile' is a framework used for product development. The goal is to develop the product iteratively, incrementally, and in a time-boxed fashion. Work gets done in 2 week sprints with 'just enough' analysis, as opposed to attempting to plan everything out up-front.

What the JD Meier does in this book is present a simple way to translate this system into a personal workflow management technique.

Here are the very basics:
-At the beginning of your week (or 'sprint') plan out your key intended outcomes. You should try to bite off only what you can fit into your timeboxed sprint (in my case I like to plan 2 weeks at a time). As you do this more, you'll get better at estimating what you can bite off. Write these key intended outcomes / goals on a list.
-At the beginning of each day, pick a couple things to work on, that map directly to your weekly (or 'sprint' goals). These should come directly from what you mapped out already.
-At the end of the week (or sprint) evaluate how you performed. Ask yourself, what you can do to improve for next time.

The system is simple. The beauty of it is that as work comes in, you can store it in a 'backlog' and feed it into your system based on priority. The author also recommends to do a monthly and yearly review with higher level goals, and recommends categorizing tasks by different areas in life (i.e. family / relationships, work, recreation, etc).

This seems very simple, and it is in a sense, but it's also very powerful because most people don't actually have the attention span to work on a goal that they set out at the beginning of the week, and evaluate how they performed.

Sprinkled around this simple concept are a number of little gems of wisdom... I'll list a few:

-Intended Outcomes over Activities - focus on your intended goal. The fact that you put in X hours does not necessarily mean that you are any closer to your intended outcome, and does not mean that you accomplished anything. Your criteria for success should always relate to whether or not your achieved your intended outcome, and not the time or effort you put into an activity.

-Rule of 3 - For any yearly, monthly, weekly, or daily goal setting, stick to working on 3 things at a time, you lose focus after any more than just 3.

-'Good Enough' over Perfection - people will often obsess over achieving perfect results (I am guilty of this) and spend more time or resources than necessary on a problem. Focus on 'Good Enough' and 'Version' your results, meaning you can always come back and improve in a Version 2 or a Version 3 of the task at hand.

-Throwing more time at something is one of the *worst* things you can do.

-Fix time and flex scope - if you have an intended outcome, get 'good enough' done in the allotted time and move onto the next thing, instead of going for perfect. Over the long run this will force you to be more efficient.

-Block time around eating / sleeping / working out.

-Results over Productivity - A lot of systems focus on being 'productive' or always using your spare capacity to work on something. Actually you DON'T want to do this. It's ok to have an hour break between appointments or commitments, the goal is always to achieve RESULTS. If you block all of your time on so as to have no spare capacity, you are almost guaranteed to be working on a lot of low value items with no spare capacity, when in reality you need to be focused on fewer high value items that will really make a difference.

This book is great. My only light criticism, is that it is probably hard to put into practice or truly 'get' the system if you haven't worked on an agile team before. It's still worth reading and re-reading certain parts a few times. I'd recommended phasing the system in, in small steps, starting with just the basics first.

As companions to this book, I'd recommend Getting Things Done, Zen to Done, and The Pomodoro Technique which all do a good job complementing each other but cover slightly different things. Of all these books, this one and Getting Things Done are probably the most essential ones to read.
