Tracking progress the easy way

This sprint we started using Jira to track our progress. The Greenhopper Plugin produces a really nice burn-down chart, therefore we don’t have to do all that work manually. The good thing is that we can log the work done and update the remaining estimates quite quickly at the end of the day and have an up-to-date chart that tell us how good we’re doing or if we are running out of time.

Above is the burn-down chart for the first sprint of a new project we are working on. You can see we finished 1 day earlier and we overestimated some of the tasks but in the end it turn out to be a very good sprint with software ready to demo. 🙂

TomTom Young Talent Development Program

I was selected for the TomTom Young Development Program later last year. 🙂

We had our first module in the RSM Rotterdam and it was great to meet with “TomTomers” from all other departments and offices from around the world. The TomTom YTD Program is made of carefully developed modules, courses and coaching and interaction with peers in a dynamic, multi disciplinary and international environment. Themes include coaching, personal effectiveness, leadership development and communication.
