Note from the author: It’s 2009 and I have been wanting to start a blog since early 2007… but I couldn’t decide on  what to talk about! I didn’t want an autobiographical blog (e.g. I went to the shop today)… and I wanted it to be useful…  I toyed with ideas of setting up a cooking blog, a dog-training blog, a property development blog and was even asked to write a blog for a leading celebrity website… but two years and no blog later… I’m cycling down The Cut on my way home from work and it finally hits me… (not a vehicle, an idea)… ;o)

In hindsight, it seems absurd that I’ve spent so long trying to figure out what to write about when the majority of my life is already dedicated to progressing, debating, practicing, teaching and implementing my greatest passion…

In true confession-of-an-addict-style – My name is Tara Lee Hamilton-Whitaker and I’m hooked on Agile Project Management.

So, here goes!
