Get ready to debunk ancient myths that might have obscured the path to true understanding by bringing artifacts into the light of the present.

Imagine yourself donning a metaphorical helmet, equipped with flashlights and boundless curiosity, as we embark on a canyoning epedition. Discover techniques for effective Backlog Management, as you illuminate the pathways of communication and collaboration.

As we delve deeper into managing work and delivering value, you’ll learn to discern what truly constitutes an increment of worth, and what does not.

So, let’s go canyoning, caving, and tomb raiding. But heed this warning—this adventure is not for the faint of hearted! There will be traps to sidestep, and who knows, perhaps even the occasional troll lurking in the shadows.
