  • 57. What's in your Delivery Toolbox?

    After a recent experience of watching a team member create their own documents from scratch, it reminded me why I have a toolbox stuffed with useful project delivery templates, guides & assets that I can deploy time & time again. It helps me with managing my time & with the time I have, I can be super productive. What do you have in your toolbox? Do you even have one, or maybe you've never thought about it. Well, more rambling from me in Episode 57 of the Delivery Manager Daily.

  • 53. How you do anything is how you do EVERYTHING

    In this episode I reflect on how tech workers behave (or should IMO) from interview & applications to their first 1st day, 1st week & 1st month on the job. Not everyone has to be locked in like David Clarke but at least think about the effort you put into things & putting your best foot forward. Bit of a ranty one. Strap in. LETS GO PEOPLE. :)
