Planning for momentum

Growth

I recently published an article in the final ever issue of Stripe PressIncrement Magazine. It’s called Planning for Momentum.

In the article, I make the case that planning is far from dead. In fact, it’s very much alive and more vital than ever before. Planning is a dynamic and generative process that improves your ideas, facilitates alignment and consensus, and leaves vital artefacts for the future.

You can read the article over at Increment, and you can buy the physical copy of the magazine if you want to experience the beautiful issue in 3D.

Effective Remote Work is out in beta

Book

I am temporarily emerging from my writing den to proudly tell you that Effective Remote Work is now out in beta.

You can pick it up as a DRM-free eBook in various digital formats suitable for your computer or e-reader over at the Pragmatic Bookshelf.

At the time of writing, the beta release consists of over 50% of the book, and new chapters will be delivered to you over the coming weeks and months. Most of them are pretty much written, and I can’t wait for you to see them. Errata and feedback are kindly welcomed so we can iron out any bugs before the whole thing goes to print in the near future.

I’m delighted to have had the book illustrated once again by Rebecca Harrison, my more talented other half. The awesome pixel art from the first book returns once again.

It’s been a long journey of late nights and long weekends in order to get to this point, and we’re not quite done. But this is the first outing into the world for the second book, and it’s not the last time that I’ve felt excited, nervous and proud.

If you do pick up the book, get in touch and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear from you.

But, for now, it’s back into the writing den I go. Until next time.
