it all started with “agile story telling“
The original intention of these pages was to practice story telling, agile story telling, and apply a passion for photography to help portray these stories. Here are the initial thoughts that drove this idea:
“It is surprising how quickly links to agile stories come to mind when reflecting on images that already exist. Now the goal is to make the linkage between such images and agility even more meaningful.
The images will happen as they have always happened, out with a camera in my hand enjoying everything that enters the lens. What is special though, is the time for reflection that a great picture creates, often by portraying something in a new way or making links to something else.
In the case of the stories here in images of agility the link is sometimes coincidental and sometimes intentional – that depends on which comes first – the idea for the story or the image that helps reflect the story. Either way let’s see where this takes us.”
now it is guided by “a purposeful vision”
Now these writings are all part of an ongoing process to better define my own personal purpose. Present focus is on a vision of creating truly collaborative, inclusive working environments. To achieve this I am helping others have the right conversations to create such workplaces for themselves. This in turn progresses me towards my own vision.
“In such a workplace our efforts are more meaningful. Such a workplace provides true purpose for those engaged in it.”
