Did your processes become a heavyweight project backpack?
And not a lightweight intrinsic helping approach?

It gets better when processes are designed as requirements.
These requirements can be reused and improved by the projects.
They also can be linked to regulatory standards as requirements.
And to product requirements if platforms in product families.

Changes and News

  • "PaR - The Book" is now (31.Dec.2022) published with ISBN-13 978-3-757503-89-5 and ISBN-10 3757503899, see page "How to buy".
  • It is already available from me directly via self-publishing from epubli. Later in January it will be available from bookstores and Amazon (link already works)
  • For sure the work on the book will continue, since not everything is fully done and I also have lots of ideas and input left. But it is a complete and good first iteration ;-)
  • 49 EUR may sound expensive, but on the one hand it is not a Harry Potter, and on the other hand you may save 49.000 EUR applying it. Reading and doing it is the larger investment!
  • The next PaR Monthly will be on Su 15th Jan 4pm and I suggest to repeat talking about team organization with PaR, for those who couldn't attend previously during job time.
  • Thanks to those who helped in 2022, mainly Martin Becker from Fraunhofer IESE and Bernhard Doleschel from ease solutions. I'm looking forward to an interesting 2023.
  • I updated the "Gatherings" page with text and photos from more events.
  • The next PaR Monthly will be on Th 15th Dec 4pm and I suggest to talk about team organization for regulations, processes and projects with PaR.
  • The German slides of the PaR presentation as part of Martins 5hr workshop at ESE in Sindelfingen 09.Dec.2022 are now available at the page "The Presentations".
  • The German video and slides of the PaR presentation at re:WORK in Berlin (a we.CONECT conference) 28.Nov.2022 are now available at the pages "The Videos" and "The Presentations".
  • In "The Book" I shifted "UML", "SysML" and "Tailoring" upfront to the "PaRis" (ch. 4), also to concentrate on "Platform-Based Families" (ch. 6) after the "Principles" (ch. 5).
  • At the event ESE Conference in Sindelfingen (Stuttgart, Germany) I supported Martin from Fraunhofer IESE in a 5hr-workshop about efficient reuse, also for processes.
  • The conference "re:work" in Berlin was just great: interesting discussions, good contacts, nice people and back to real life.
  • Upgrade: Instead of "Agile PEP" I will now speak at the parallel main conference "re:work" on Mo 28th Nov 2:45pm-3:15pm. I'm looking forward to see you irl.
  • Announcement: I will co-host Martin Becker from Fraunhofer IESE in a 5hr-workshop on the ESE congress about increasing reuse efficiency. I'm looking forward to see you irl also here.
  • The Nov PaR Monthly was about R4J in Jira and Bernhard Doleschel from Ease Solutions invited their round table guests. I presented PaR and it was welcomed as good R4J example also.
  • It was a great small and nice PaR Gathering again. I now created a page to collect memories from our >gatherings<.
  • Looking forward to meet you guys live in Andernach on 21/22 Oct
  • Now that the 3 core tool booklets (Jira, Polarion, Jama) are done, I ordered them in professional high quality print, 3 prints each. If you're interested in getting one - just let me know!
  • We want to keep the topic for the next Monthly also: "PaR with R4J (Jira)", because seeing PaR hands-on is clarifying a lot.
  • 16th: Right after introducing the new tool booklet in the Monthly I did several improvements and uploaded the update. Feel free to download and check - feedback welcome.
  • 14th: Just in time before the next Monthly tomorrow I finished the PaR - for Jira with R4J! It is available now for download, also from this welcome-page as 2nd favorite.
  • The prints of The Book in matt as well as the fully glossy A4 print look awesome! These will be my default configurations for all future prints as product or showcase!
  • I ordered 3 prints of The Book in matt hardcover and matt pages, for Thomas, Martin and me. For the first time I also ordered a fully glossy A4 print (kind of luxury edition).
  • Now The Book has got headlines, showing the level 1 chapter number and book title, while the footlines still show the URL and the page number.
  • The imprint (page 1) got small formal changes, as well as the last page (the more-page, now for tools R4J, Polarion and Jama).
  • I improved the chapter for the big V. I think I have to shift the tailoring chapter behind this one or before the platform stuff at all (to combine platform and big V).
  • The page "About us" needed some further improvement and shows some faces now, to further detail the picture on the Welcome-page (which is now linked also).
  • If you want a PDF of the draft of The Book (or an update of that PDF) just give me a hint and I will deliver!
  • Working on chapter 5.6 for tailoring PaRis; while Scrum Guide says that you have to implement everything of the Guide to call it Scrum I'm much more agile with PaR.
  • 353 impressions and 5 reactions on my LinkedIn posting for the Monthly. That truly is a good improvement, for PaR itself and for our community - thanks to all!
  • Focusing the core topic of the Sep. PaR Monthly on applying a development process to create something that supports a business process - that's reuse and traceability.
  • Since more than a year I'm applying PaR in a project to create a big data platform that supports the German standard processes for critical infrastructural systems.
  • It takes time to establish PaR in a company, as every paradigm shift does. It is essential to understand the steps of change and the coaching approaches to introduce PaR.
  • Working on chapter 4.6 of The Book: "Making the process design becoming a part of the process".
  • Good news: I plan to publish the 1st edition of "The Book" in winter, maybe already at the end of the year. It will not be fully done, but it's a good 1st iteration.
  • Bad news: I was waitlisted for the ESE conference, but now I'm off completely, why ever. Last year I got good feedback and this year I wanted to go beyond - but well, they don't want.
  • By the way: I updated the page "About me" with text and photos.
  • The core topic of the Aug. PaR Monthly was how to design a process that selects and tailors further processes for a project, also with kind of process platform like product platforms.
  • Further preparing the master thesis of Thomas with him and Martin from IESE in the context of PaR, related to automotive functional safety and cyber security regulatory standards.
