A white board with an "I AGREE" phrase followed by several signatures and a pile of post-its stuck in the back that just a couple of days ago where all over that board. Today their job is done and now they stand there as a proof and a promise that will end up on a brand new IBM Redbooks publication.
When a ITSO Residency starts a new group of residents coming from all over the world get together with on thing in common, passion for what they do.
After a few days ideas go from one place to the other, from one brain to the other, and if one is fast enough all of them can be cached and post-it to the board. Structure is added and it becomes the TOC, or table of contents, of a new book.
Then each team member stands in front of this board and leaves their signature, this simple act creates a strong connection between the passion, the ideas and those post-its, that reflects what each one of them and the team as a whole expects and will do for a brand new IBM Redbooks publication.
