Regarding your first one, I would suggest we make a distinction between values, principles, and practices (similar to the “agile onion”). And that this will help us become better “agile mindset change agents” I would be interested in what you think of my framework: https://bit.ly/2OCZaaY

Love the lean podcast approach and I am also wondering if it could help with the Accenture Form workshops.

Hi Amatai,

We met at Agile Coach Camp and I had loved listening to your podcast ever since. I know you took a bit of a break and am encouraged to see you starting back up.

I’d like to add a few topics in the areas that I often see missing in many agile transformations

How to assess and more importantly, help improve the ability of our teams to deliver working software frequently?

Where does an executive fit into Agile? What can they do to help? What behaviors and practices need to be reviewed to see if they should be adjusted or eliminated in order for agile to succeed?

How is Agile similar - and different from Lean principles and practices?

I’m sure I’ll have more later, but this is what’s on my mind right now that I don’t always see addressed in agile transformations.

I’m looking forward to seeing you again at Agile and Beyond!

Nice… I made a inexpensive model, using drinking straws, of the Iron Triangle model of PM just to see if it really works when modeled in the real world. AND it works just as expected… except…

I’m wondering if anyone else has found that the episodes that are available through iTunes seem to play poorly with the Podcast app, at least in iOS 7.x.

What I have been finding is that, other than episode 1, when I start to play an episode it will play for about two seconds and then the Podcast app will either freeze, crash, or just end the episode. This is the only podcast where this has happened to me before (out of more than a dozen podcasts that I subscribe to).

I will find some way to listen to them, either on this site or another app, but thought I would let you know in case there is something that could be altered in the recording or distribution to iTunes.

Thanks for your work. John

and I’m reminded of my assumptions about listeners being a little further along than having just been asked to try “Agile” and needing to figure out how. I’d love to have something more useful to offer folks in that situation, and will think on how to do a good job of it. If you’ve got an angle in mind, I’d be glad to hear it.

All very great content, but I’d love to hear 3 minutes dedicated to getting started with becoming agile. The topics can be a bit much for new teams just being introduced to the practices & philosophy. Something to help ease people who know nothing into the world of agility would be fantastic.

I appreciate hearing that. Hope it’s helpful to you and those you work with.
