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 of our "Should I Take This?" series, Jay Hrcsko and Troy Lightfoot sit down to discuss the SAFe DevOps Practitioner course.

Enjoy!

In this Agile Uprising podcast, co-hosts Andy Cleff and Erik Cottrell chat with David Marquet about his latest book. The hypothesis behind “Leadership is Language” is that how we communicate at work has been programmed by Industrial Revolution thinking. However in today’s world of creative knowledge work, we no longer labor on old-fashioned assembly lines, so why should we use language that was designed for them? 

Marquet provides six plays to change the way we show up, impact our organizational cultures, and ultimately transform our outcomes:

  • Control the clock, don't obey the clock
  • Collaborate, don't coerce
  • Commit, don't comply
  • Complete, don't continue
  • Improve, don't prove
  • Connect, don't conform

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.
