In this week’s episode of the Agile Uprising Podcast, our hosts Paul Elia, Jay Hrcsko and Ryan Lockard begin a mini-series exploring the principles of Modern Agile. In this episode, the hosts explore “Make People Awesome”. Our hosts discuss the principle, what it means to them and then individually explore examples from their careers where making people awesome was demonstrated.
As the episode comes to a close, each of the hosts has some exercises for the listeners to try at work to promote making others awesome in their lives. We encourage the listeners to try these experiments and report back their results either via twitter, the coalition or email.

Agile Uprising’s own James Gifford was lucky enough to attend the #WomenInAgile event prior to #Agile2017, with This year's theme being Empowering the Changing Face of Agile: Women in Agile ; James had nothing but great things to say and we want to share the lighting talk portion of the event. The Organizer took an interesting approach to selecting speakers by utilizing only women speakers that had never before been compensated for a talk; Each person selected was provided a mentor to prep for their talks.
Join our hosts James Gifford and Ryan Lockard for a fantastic discussion with pioneering Lean thought leaders, Mary and Tom Poppendeick. Mary and Tom were gracious enough to come on the show and share stories from the early days of Lean, the issues with waterfall development, the unique stance on backlogs and the product owner role, a discussion on Lean Value Mapping and a discussion on diversity in software engineering.
