The Big-Ass View on Competency (video)

Here's a video of a talk I did at the Norwegian Developers Conference. The talk is about different ways of developing competence in an organization, and it draws on traffic management as a metaphor. The original slides can be found here.

The talk scored quite well: 31 green cards, 3 yellow ones, and no red cards. I calculated that this would correspond to 95% satisfaction (assuming that green = 100%, yellow = 50% and red = 0%).

A kind word to my Swedish and Belgian readers: I didn't really mean what I said in this video… I'm sorry. 🙂

BTW, You cannot hear the Norwegian audience laughing out loud during my presentation. But they actually did!

    I enjoyed your presentation. It would be helpful if you could give a few concrete examples of some of the metrics you might manage for each of the 7 dimensions of a project. Thanks, David

    Thanks!
    I’m afraid a few examples for 7 dimensions is a bit too much work for me now. But I’ll try and do my best to include them in my book! 🙂
