Curse of Organizational SilenceThis week, our guests are Carmen Medina and Lois Kelly.

Together they have started a movement: Rebels at Work - which has the goal of empowering people to create change and find more meaning in work.

We discuss the curse of organization silence. An observation that people in all kinds of jobs at all kinds of workplaces reach a point where they want to say, 'Enough.'  They have the same uncomfortable realization: 'I should do something about this.' Yet many remain silent and don’t bring ideas forward.

Lois and Carmen share a number of ways to find your voice, and speak up to challenge what no longer works and lead change - whatever one’s position.

Create Great Teams via Self SelectionSelf selection, the fastest and most efficient way to form stable teams, is based on a belief that people are at their happiest and most productive if they can choose what they work on and who they work with.

Self selection is a radical idea to some: Trust people to know best and let them decide which team they should work in.

Listen to this episode and learn:

  • Why this works at scale (Dunbar would be so proud)
  • How to organize an event where everyone gets together and chooses which team they want to work in
  • Long term measurable impacts of self-selection

Focusing on these five metric areas as a diagnostic tool helps teams grow.

Coaching teams to harness data in a positive way also creates a culture of Continuous Improvement.

Scaled Agile Framework Demystified

In this week's episode coalition member Brad Stokes joins Ryan Lockard and Jay Hrcsko as they attempt to "demystify" SAFe for listeners who may not have used the Scaled Agile Framework.  Ryan and Jay have opposing viewpoints when it comes to utilizing the "big picture", the role of official training in the effectiveness of utilizing SAFe, as well as a bevy of other topics.  Whether you're pro- or anti-SAFe, this one is definitely a passionate debate!

Dynamic Reteaming

This week, our guest is Heidi Helfand, Director, Engineering Excellence at Procore Technologies and author of a new book Dynamic Reteaming.

Our discussion challenges the notion that we need to keep our software develop teams “the same” in order to be successful.

And instead, as agilists and coaches our goal should be helping teams to self-reflect and shift from working in silos to working as cohesive and perhaps non-persistent teams.  

In short, to help them dynamically reteam, of their own volition, when there’s value and wisdom to be gained by doing so.

This episode is hosted by Andy Cleff and Paul Elia.

Make Safety a Prerequisite

Modern Agile: Make Safety a Prerequisite

In this week’s episode of the Agile Uprising Podcast, hosts Jay Hrcsko and Paul Elia continue our 5-part mini-series exploring the principles of Modern Agile. In this episode we explore “Make Safety a Prerequisite” - what this principle means to us with examples from our careers. As the episode comes to a close we challenge listeners to try some experiments with this principle, and we encourage people to report back with results, questions, or feedback via Twitter @AgileUprising or the Agile Uprising Coalition website, https://coalition.agileuprising.com/.

This week's show is hosted by Paul Elia, Ryan Lockard and special guest Mike Ackerbauer.  We dive into the second of the four Modern Agile Principles, Experiment and Learn Rapidly.

In this show, we peel apart the position "You can’t make people awesome or make safety a prerequisite if you aren’t learning. We learn rapidly by experimenting frequently. We make our experiments “safe to fail” so we are not afraid to conduct more experiments. When we get stuck or aren’t learning enough, we take it as a sign that we need to learn more by running more experiments.".

Our panel peels apart what this means to them, how it has been applied in their careers and we dive into Mike’s keys to strong teams:

  1. Always strive for shared understanding
  2. Understand the process for group innovative thinking
  3. Understand your team’s thinking mode preference

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.

 

  1. Joanna Vahlsing (mentor Laura Powers):
    Gender's Impact on the Ability for Agile Teams to have Meaningful Feedback Loops

    2. Linda Podder (mentor Lynn Winterboer):
    Innovation Isn't Just for the Dev Team - It's for Scrum Masters Too!

    3. Susan Marricone (mentor Ryan Ripley):
    Empowering Women through Agile Outside IT

 

Big thanks to Natalie Warnert, Billie Schuttpelz, Eric Willeke, and so many others for a great event! Enjoy!
