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!

To stay competitive in today’s market, organizations need to adopt a culture of customer-centric practices that focus on outcomes rather than outputs. Companies that live and die by outputs often fall into the "build trap," cranking out features to meet their schedule rather than the customer’s needs.

On this episode of the Agile Uprising podcast; Colleen, Chris, and Troy sit down with Melissa Perri and discuss her new book "Escaping The Build Trap: How Effective Product Management Creates Real Value"

Success from FailureThe theme of this episode is "How life’s scary moments become great learning experiences."

Bucking the trend of the vast trove of conferences held across the world on a near weekly basis that focus on successes, Andy CleffColleen JohnsonRyan Lockard explore with our guest Tracey Welson Rossman what HASN’T worked: defeats, floundering initiatives, outright failures.

Reflecting on these experiences as “understanding failure as a part of learning” we can inspire each other to keep going when we feel like throwing in the towel.

Agile Married with Children

During this special Valentine's Day episode Lyssa Adkins, Debbie Madden, Brad Stokes, Troy Lightfoot and Andy Cleff have a lively panel discussion on how they use their agile mindsets, those values and beliefs - in their daily lives:

  • With their partners
  • Their children
  • On Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • But, alas not with their pets. (Would have given agility training for fido a whole new meaning!)

Nothing was off the table… well, maybe some things… they kept the episode SFW as they took Software Development out of the Manifesto...

And shared how they apply the guiding principles outside of the team room.

Lyssa Adkins joins hosts Andrew LeffChris Murman, and Andy Cleff for a wonderful discussion about agile and mindfulness. We explore how the combination contributes to a practice of building meaningful human relationships and liberating organizational potential.

Yep, it can be a tall order to provide service of meaning and purpose; and showing up in the here and now is integral to our success as coaches, practitioners, and partners in change (and in marriage as Lyssa shares...)

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!

In this live episode, recorded on location at the Agile and Beyond conference this week, our all-star cast tackles the topic of Imposter Syndrome:

Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome) is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud". The term was coined in 1978 by clinical psychologists Pauline R. Clance and Suzanne A. Imes. Despite external evidence of their competence, those exhibiting the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be. Some studies suggest that impostor syndrome is particularly common among high-achieving women.

~ source: wikipedia

Join our guests listed below, as they have a very honest and vulnerable discussion about the reality of imposter syndrome, and how it effects them. Also, how they view imposter syndrome negatively effecting the agile community at large.
