Wow, it is Christmas day and I made it. The Lean/Agile Advent Calendar is to an end. I have publish a new blog post for all the 24 days running up to Christmas. It has been really fun but also quite hard and stressful at times.
Today I would like to share a bit about how I have made this Lean/Agile Advent Calendar. As you all have probably figured out by now I’m a big LEGO® fan and passionate about Lean and Agile. Running up towards December I was throwing around some ideas what I could do with the LEGO® City Advent Calendar. What I then settled on was this:
- Open the door for each day
- Take a photo of the unopened bag of LEGO® bricks
- Assemble what was in the bag
- Take a photo of the assembled bricks
- Figure out how a Lean and/or Agile concept could connect to the photo of the day
- Write a blog post for that concept
Step 1 to 4 was done in one session. Step 5 and 6 was done the day before or a few days before the day it should be published. Some days have been harder than others. I had a plan to build up a buffer of days so it would not be so stressful, but I rarely had time to do that. Almost all posts was written the evening before or early in the morning hours. If there will be a next time I will definitely start earlier and build up a buffer of days to reduce the stress.
It was really fun and very challenging. I thank my wife and my friends for helping me out completing this project. And thank you all who has followed this Advent Calendar.
Here are some behind the scenes photos from this photo session and others. Enjoy.
This is my Lean/Agile Advent Calendar. I will publish a short post on a Lean/Agile topic every day up until Christmas. I will based each days topic on what is behind the door in the LEGO® City Advent Calendar. So be sure to check back every day!
