Once upton a time

All about my books Books – including the latest book The Art of Agile Product Ownership – and work in progress: A little book about Agile and OKRs

Insights on Agile development

Business Patterns – the book and the raw patterns which make up the book

ACCU Overload – For over 10 years I wrote regularly for the ACCU Overload magazine, and occasionally CVu. More of my early writing concerns programming, C++, organization learning and management.

Miscellaneous writing – an unfinished book on agile, millennial angst in High Church C++, notes on estimation, PRINCE2 and other random stuff.


Patterns – Between 2003 and 2015 I was an active member of the Hillside Patterns community, in particular the EuroPLoP and VikingPLoP conferences.

Business patterns – much of my work at EuroPLoP and VikingPLoP concerned business patterns. This culminated in the book Business Patterns for Software Developer. The raw (post-conference, pre-book) pattern papers are available here.
