Team Temperature – an easy way to measure your current state

Over the years I have worked on many process/org improvement initiatives with my internal teams and the client  teams as a consultant. I have used a few tools/models/techniques to assess the current state. Of all things I have used, my

Team Temperature technique for process engineering, team retrospective etc.

Team Temperature technique for process engineering, team retrospectives etc.

favorite technique is a very simple one which gives me very good insights into the current state in about 15 minutes.  It is a concept somewhat driven from Net Promoter Score (NPS) concept. I call it Team Temperature. I can’t take credit for the term as it has been used by other guys before me. Probably my variation and usage of the technique may give a heart aches to some who use it differently.

What makes good teams to fail?

Case Studies Project FailuresOver the years I have seen many good teams make a few common mistakes that led them to failures. In this post I have picked up 5 case studies where teams with good track record of success failed to meet their goals. These teams worked at companies of different size & culture. The project work included enterprise web application development, custom force.com application development and Salesforce.com integration with other cloud application, process change management and sales and marketing for a start-up product/services.

After seeing the teams repeating these common sense mistakes over and over again, I come to believe that common sense is not the common after all. Watch out for the early symptoms of failure and correct your course before it is too late.

Atlassian Development : Sample code to get the list of projects from your JIRA instance..

In this blog post I will be sharing tips on how to populate a list of projects from your JIRA instance. The project list can be useful for features where you need to relate a particular issue to multiple projects or clone an issue under multiple projects.

select_projects

Getting the list of projects from JIRA database is a fairly straight forward task. Follow these steps to get the list:

 

  1. First import the required classes in your java file where you want to fetch all the current JIRA projects. Here are the commands for the importing files
  • import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project;
  • import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;

 

  1. Now in the file, where you need to get the list of all current projects, write the following code
    • List projects=ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectObjects();

Here the object projects is an Array List of type com.atlassian.jira.project.Project. You can get all the information of the projects from this ArrayList. Simple enough ?
