 This week's episode features special guest William Strydom and host Troy Lightfoot on the topic of "Transformative Cultural Change." William and Troy discuss why "transformations" in general are so difficult and how Agile transformations are not unique to cultural change. They apply the lessons learned in Apartheid South Africa to change at the individual, team and and organizational levels in Agile Transformations. They also dive into why coaches who are expected to "install or roll out" agile will have limited success if the underlying human psychology is ignored.

Getting Things Done with David Allen

Join David Allen, Brad Stokes and Andy Cleff as they discuss

Getting Things Done in an Agile World.

"Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them."

David is the New York Times best-selling author of Getting Things Done - The Art of Stress-free Productivity. Since it was first published almost fifteen years ago, Getting Things Done has become an incredibly influential business book and one of the gotos for personal organization. GTD is now shorthand for a way of approaching professional and personal tasks and is used by individuals from CEOs to developers.

David discusses the origins of GTD, the journey upon the way, mistakes made and lessons learned. He touches on a range of research such as distributed cognition, the influence of the martial arts and experience of establishing one of the first truly holocratic companies.

Come and join the discussion on the coalition and share of your experiences with GTD.

Deliberately Developmental OrganizationsJoin Andy Flemming and Andy Cleff as they discuss An Everyone Culture: Deliberately Developmental Organizations.

DDO’s create an unusual kind of environment, one that tolerates — even prefers — making one's failures, risks, and weaknesses public so that colleagues can support each other in the process of overcoming them.

There's a wonderful congruence with Modern Agile principles:

  • Make People Awesome
  • Make Safety a Prerequisite
  • Experiment & Learn Rapidly
  • Deliver Value Continuously

In this episode, Lisette Sutherland @lightling and Andy Cleff @justsitthere discuss how to work together anywhere. The biggest takeaway: there isn’t a one-solution-fits-all for remote working, no single formula to follow. Each person, each company, will need to experiment with tools and processes to find what makes him, her, or them most productive. Listen in and learn about the tools available and various processes that can work for different kinds of remote teams.

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.

Forecasting with Troy Magennis

This week's episode features special guest Troy Magennis and host Paul Elia on the topic of Forecasting.

"Forecasting is about answering the right questions, to a transparent degree of certainty, with as little effort as possible." - Troy Magennis, CEO, Focused Objective

This said, Troy has spent considerable effort making the job of forecasting easier for the rest of us! On his company's website there are a number of free tools and spreadsheets to model scenarios ranging from classical project management to Scrum and Kanban.

In our discussion we explore the top three mistakes that people make when forecasting and what can be done to mitigate problems.

Exposing Time Theft: Making Work Visible with Dominica DegrandisIf someone stole your wallet, you'd notice it. So why don't people notice when they are robbed of something much more valuable than their wallet - time? Join Dominica DeGrandis as she chats with host Colleen Johnson on how to make visible - and reduce - the churn and burn that is creating a workforce constantly on the edge of burnout.

The technology world - and indeed the whole business world - is moving at a pace faster than ever before, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Instead of consigning ourselves to the pressure cooker of the modern world, it's time to elevate how we work. It's time to level up our game. It's time to make work visible.

In his first book, Turn the Ship Around! David Marquet described his experiences as captain aboard the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe. When he took command, the ship was, how shall we say… “underperforming”

However, after one year, Santa Fe was recognized as the most improved ship in the fleet. In less than two years she shed her infamy as the worst boat in the navy and started winning awards as the best ship in her class.

Captain Marquet has released a new workbook to help others apply the framework he developed over those years of experimentation to their own organizations - to build highly effective communities based on personal responsibility and trust.

Leadership is not for the select few at the top. In highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level.
