Stay Self-sanitized

This post is not about viruses =) Let me share an important note I’ve made during the work process setup for any activities or projects I manage.

Any work process should be self-sanitized: it should have a step to review the process, detect problems and have a mechanism to apply fixes for them.

Why do we need to? Self-sanitizing makes the process adaptable to a reality, fix the issues, make it more convenient for participants and etc.

This point looks like a Retrospective meeting in SCRUM, but it’s not only about SCRUM.

I think any long-running work process should follow this rule.

For example, after each estimation, I do a retrospective with the team to detect all pains we met during the process . I’ve created a spreadsheet where I accumulate all sensible action items to fix raised problems. Also, I have a reminder to take at least one item and perform it. Now the process is much better than it was before. It’s alive and convinient!
