Doing anything important?

Picture taken of my overall reader counter today 09.00 AM CET.

😎 just 111,111 more readers to go until we pass the next milestone and on a good way to reach my 2022 stretch goal of 1 million overall readers by 30-Apr-22. Thanks in advance for further supporting me, very much appreciated 👍. And I am doing something important in any case for me, possibly also for others? 🤔 One more success note into the 2022 JAR today.

And with respect to the headline today, it is related to an Oliver Emberton quote - "If you’re not pissing someone off, you probably aren’t doing anything important". Thanks to Jurgen Appelo, who did use this quote in one of his unFIX model emails. The unFIX model as such is causing a lot of noise in the agile coaches world on social media in the moment and on top of it Jurgen is comparing some of the well known agile models and frameworks with it. See e.g. Holacracy, Team Topologies, the Spotify Model, Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) on his blog page.
