Change...the elephant in the room when it comes to transformation.  Why do we try and standardize it?  Is it merely just a training thing?  Join hosts Chris Murman and Colleen Johnson as they sit down to discuss this topic with Esther Derby, author of the new book 7 Rules for Positive, Productive Change.  Enjoy!

Are you trying to transform your organization but still doing "projects"?  How do we get "the business" speaking the same language as IT to help our chances of success?  And have we found the Agile Rosetta Stone when it comes to the above?  Join Jay Hrcsko as he sits down to discuss all the above with the author of Product to Project and the creator of the Flow Framework, Dr. Mik Kersten!

Join Agile Uprising host Andy Cleff as he chats with Mark Schell about a challenge most software development teams face: the struggle to keep their codebases tidy. 

Often while organizations are super focused on delivering new functionality to their users, clean up tasks such as deleting unused code are not prioritized and/or viewed as important work. 

Plus it is so much more fun to take on the glamorous work of using the latest technologies to create a user interface or creating a new algorithm to perform machine learning. 

Listen in and grab some strategies for changing mindsets and behaviors to leave things better than you found them.

Join Brad Stokes and Christopher Avery as they discuss The Responsibility Process®.

When Christopher Avery was a management consultant, this was his driving question: Why are so many smart people unhappy at work?

20 years ago, Christopher realized that the most useful skills he was teaching his smart, ambitious, professional clients were coping skills. They needed coping skills because they were stuck in a suffocating culture that systematically disempowered and controlled them. An insidious control cycle kept well-meaning, high-performing leaders and key contributors at all levels from doing their best, taking risks, learning, and operating with freedom, power and choice for the organizations’ best interests.  

His own career trajectory changed forever when Christopher began working with an emerging behavioral science framework — The Responsibility Process®. This powerful framework is the world's first proven how-to approach for understanding, teaching, and taking personal responsibility. It helps us apply our innate leadership ability to face and overcome any challenge. Operating in freedom, power, and choice, we encourage and support those we lead to do likewise.
