GTD again... and a bit of Scrum

GTD again… and a bit of Scrum

I finally found some time to document my various GTD setups. It is quite interesting how much time it takes to realize what is actually behind GTD, and what the real issues in doing one’s work are! Another interesting dimension is the connection between GTD and the Scrum management method (it’s not only usable for software development). To me, projects look awfully like user stories, and sprint backlog items like next actions, just on a slightly bigger scale. And the principle to frequently identify those things which would bring you closer to the “done” state, and start working on them instead of trying to come up with a project and requirements plan at the very beginning looks very much like the GTD process to me.
