There are people in there

Teams

I have no intention of rushing today. I arrive in London in about an hour, at which point the day of meetings, teleconferences and making ‘value add’ observations begins, but only after a flat white at an overpriced independent coffee house.

This evening, I meet up with a well know Agile Guru. In my industry this is fast becoming shorthand for Individual with common sense who understands that organisations are formed of real people.

It should be interesting.  He is a prolific author and (I am told) an impressive speaker. In a way I am more interested in how his ideas land in the minds of some of my colleagues and clients rather than the detail of what he has to say.  If for one moment they consider that the most complex part of their organisation is the interactions between people, then the session will be valuable.

“I work for an organisation, focussed on delivering excellent digital experiences, conceived, created and supported by talented resources globally.”  I hear a similar phrase every day.  Love or hate the corporate vernacular, but don’t forget, there are people in there.

What will the Contented Frog become?

General Musings

I suspect that many bloggers reflect upon their first post whilst writing their first post. As with most things in life the first time for anything is often recognised and embraced as a ‘moment’ whilst sometimes the finale may slip by unrecognised.

I am not sure what this site will become.  A reflection of me, of course.  I certainly identify with the Contented Frog.  Finding contentment and peace in a turbulent world is an achievement and ignorant bliss is increasingly difficult to maintain. 

Perhaps this will become an exploration of how to find that contentment in a world of growing connections and limitless encounters.
