Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to adjust, change course, wrangle that irresponsible and unwilling character into line as the problems present themselves rather than extending the writing process into years? Geeks of another kind discovered the secret to change –– they call it agility. They embrace change and even revel in it, exploring their subject one bite at a time. They choose small chunks of the subject and begin writing at any point in their storyline that seems to interest them at the time, creating one small, complete piece before moving on to another small chunk they describe as their backlog.
These knowledge workers work as a team of close-knit professionals that, in any other format, may never even meet. Yet they come together for that moment, to build something wonderful –– something that the customers love, want, and eagerly await. Authors of fiction of any genre can use this tool called agility to their advantage. They can embrace change too, rather than wring their hands as they wait for feedback.
The key is in creating an environment that enables change to happen naturally. Authors need to use the virtual environment and bend it to their will, creating a virtual world around them, using behaviors that other knowledge workers use to create success where failures once ruled. This requires us to understand virtuality, trust, teams, and networks. And crucially, the dynamics of a virtual business.
