Agile Uprising is a purpose-built network that focuses on the advancement of the agile mindset and global professional networking between and among practicing agilists.

 

This is a group founded by passionate practitioners for passionate practitioners, and not a revenue generating organization.

We will remain agnostic of certifying bodies, removing external influences such as sponsors, partners and other organizations allowing us to focus purely on the advancement of the agile craft.

In this episode, Andy Cleff and Mike Caddell chat with guest Soren Pedersen about the drivers of quality.

If organizations are to be successful at creating high-quality products they need the right kind of management commitment, organization-wide communication, safety, and transparency.

In short - they need more than “the right” framework, they need the right kind of attitude.

Digital.  Lean.  Agile.  These words come loaded with so much baggage, how do you as a leader even begin to comprehend, let alone deliver a "transformation"?  In this week's episode we sit down with Mike Burrows, author of the book Right to Left: The digital leader's guide to Lean and Agile (and a few others :)) to discuss his views on agility, how to get leadership in on the journey, and they touch on Agendashift, Mike's work in the Kanban space, and various other topics.  Enjoy!

We often talk about the top-down aspects of a transformation...so does leadership experience with agile define whether you'll be successful or not?  Most leaders rose through the ranks via Tayloristic behavior...does that bode poorly for your transformation?  Join host Jonathan Schneider as he convenes a panel comprised of Mike Caddell, Andrew Leff, and Jay Hrckso to discuss.  Enjoy!

"My boss has his orders, and I'm just following mine..." Have you heard this line? How do you coach around it? Join Amy Neil, Chris Wistrom, Mike Caddell, Todd Thrash, Chris Murman, Andrew Leff, and Jay Hrcsko as they unpack this most-painful of responses to the question of "Why are we doing this?"

Staying sane during Covid? Kinda over-rated.

It's been over 5 months of lockdown for all of us and dealing with situations we never ever considered we'd have to live thru.

In this episode, we chat about maintaining at least a facade of doing ok - as extroverts and introverts.

Self-care strategies to get through each and every day, like Jay's roller skates.

Why are people the way they are?  How much of our behavior is nature?  Or is it nurture?  And why do we act certain ways in groups?  Join Coalition members Frans Alkemade and Joel Stone as they discuss how the concepts portrayed in the book bump up against their experiences in agile transformations, software development, and leading change overall.  Enjoy!
