Getting Results Knowledge Base


Getting Results Knowledge Base

I created a simple view of the Getting Results Knowledge Base for my latest book, Getting Results the Agile Way, which is a personal results system for work and life.  The Knowledge Base provides simple job aids including Cheat Sheets, Checklists, How Tos, Guidelines, and Templates.

If you want a quick visual overview of Getting Results, then explore the Visuals for Getting Results collection.

I would also recommend you browse the Guidelines for Getting Results.   The guidelines are a very tight set of “what to do,” “why,” and “how” summaries for getting results.  What’s special about this set is that I reviewed them with several folks inside and outside of Microsoft that have focused on personal productivity and team productivity for many years.  You might just find the gem that’s a game changer for you.

If you want a jump start for learning the system, see Getting Started with Agile Results.

The book is going to edit soon, so your feedback would be appreciated. (Making changes gets tougher when the book is in edit.)

  1. I used to create job aids for my team when I had a regular day job. They were indeed helpful, especially for long or complicated processes, but they were even beneficial for relatively simple tasks and helped ensure that there were no missed steps.

  2. Hey Melissa

    I find they’re a great way to share tribal knowledge. The key for me is always having lightweight checklists or steps, that are easy to modify and update … so that they are living, breathing documents.

  3. I loved your book. I’m a big fan of finding my rhythm instead of being a big bully to myself. For example you talk about hot spots. This is a concept I’ve been working on and I’m getting much more productive because of it.

    Thank you. I’m glad to hear that hot spots are helping out. For me, the hot spots finally gave me a simple way to invest my time and energy for results.

  5. Hey, J.D. I did check out the links you leave here, and you seem to have everything very much under control with the book. My only feedback is… this is ‘way cool and I’m looking forward to the launch and Getting Results, even more results than I’ve gotten, especially with your Rule Of Three!

    The book is in final edit so it won’t be long now. I’ll be sharing some slides soon, and then probably some videos as well.
