The Visible Planning Calendar

Planning is great. Too bad it’s so hard. Too bad it so often results in weird plans and deadlines that jump around in the calendar like drunken fleas.

Here’s an idea (yet untried by me) for a counter-measure: The Visible Planning Calendar. Goal: to make planning more transparent by at least making dates somewhat less jumpy. Contents: an agile, or at least iterative, development methodology, plus some extra rhytm to it.

Just an idea. Inspired by others. Credit given in pdf above.
