“Inspect and adapt” is a familiar mantra in agile software development, which is about building a flexible process that anticipates and embraces change. Many of the things I enjoy about product management are related to building and adapting processes based on what is going well and what could be improved. In my role at BoardEffect, I immediately noticed a correlation between my work as a project manager and how I approach some of my non-work pursuits, in particular, homebrewing. I initially got into brewing simply because I liked beer and I wanted to learn more about how to make it, but it quickly spiraled into obsessing over how to improve the beer I was making, how to change the process based on which style I wanted to make, and how to troubleshoot off-flavors. I don’t homebrew because it’s cost-effective, because I don’t have access to unique beers, or even because it’s that fun (it’s a lot of sanitizing). It’s really all about the process.
There is something satisfying about integrating two technologies. Recently, I’ve been working on the integration of some internal systems at BoardEffect. I took a moment to appreciate how transformative these connections can be for a business. A process that used to take hours now takes a fraction of the time. This allows teams to focus on what really matters and not get bogged down manually manging information between systems.

Why is it that stuff seems to multiply and accumulate during the winter? On the kitchen counter. On the shelf in the living room. What is all that junk? Who brought it in the house? Maybe it is our nesting instinct? Good News: Spring is upon us and with Spring comes the urge to open the windows and the desire to declutter.
That inclination pertains to one group of people more than another. Are you a thrower or a saver? Here is a cautionary tale with a seasonally appropriate solution.
