So far I have successfully implemented the Zeroth Rule of Agile:
If you’re not sitting comfortably, rearrange the furniture.
There have been no squeals of dismay from the client. In fact, I don’t think anyone really looked up from their work as I pushed and shoved tables, rearranged power cords, moved filing cabinets and discovered the troves of untouched treasures behind the other filing cabinet which no one knew about.
While doing this, I remembered an incident at the first company which I joined, in which alongside my coding duties I acted as sysadmin. The MD saw me carrying a large monitor along the corridor, and decided that I needed a trolley to move such heavy items. Two trolleys were duly ordered. It helped a lot, I confess, and we were able to shift four monitors at once on the new beasts – but isn’t it strange that the other sysadmins (all male) had managed without them for years?
