In this panel episode, Andy Cleff, Richard Dolman, Marc Story, from Agile Velocity, and Claudia Orozco, John Schneider, and Mike Caddell, members of the Agile Uprising, discuss the pros and cons of various approaches to agile transformations.
They reach the conclusion that by taking a balanced, pragmatic approach and recognizing where centralization and decentralization make sense, leaders can dramatically increase the chances of transformation success.
Hosts Andy Cleff and Jenny Tarwater, Enterprise Agile Coach at Agile Velocity, chat with Esther Derby about the myth of the annual performance review. They uncover how the ritual reinforces existing power structures and diminishes safety for teams.
They then explore ways to help people to be more successful in their roles. Things like regular feedback as a means to influence future behavior, and recognizing that performance is always a function of a person plus their environment.
So many groups form. And so many groups fade. What distinguishes those groups that grow and flourish from those that fade and fail? Agile Uprising host Andy Cleff chats with Ted Rau, from Sociocracy for All, about using intentional processes to establish an inclusive group culture early on to grow and flourish without governance troubles getting in the way – while keeping all eyes on a shared purpose.
