Freelancing can be a dream and nightmare at the same time. Working as your own boss can be liberating. It can also bring extra stress as you are the only one to blame. On the other hand you can choose to work without wearing pants…
Whatever your thrill is that you are freelancing you are a special breed. If takes special skills to be able to deal with life as a freelancer. You must have discipline to do work without someone pushing you. Knowing something about legal, taxes and other business related fields is also very useful. But how do you run a successful freelancing business?
Although I’m fairly young I have already found myself in several projects that tried to do scrum and some that did. I say tried and did because there is a real difference. Scrum is not just some method you use to do projects. It’s actually just a framework build upon the philosophy of agile software development. This is where most people go wrong. They do the framework but do not embrace the ideals behind it.
In this way only the process is changed and not the way they think about what they are doing. Without really breaking through to the core it will not be possible to get all the benefits of the ideas behind the method.
