  • Episode 139: Focus Continues On The Why

    As we continue to revisit prior episodes, we bring back a Parking Lot episode on organizational change and leadership from last season with Amy, Brent, Jesse, Robin, and Teresa.

  • Episode 138: When You Do The Fundamentals, It’s Easy

    Our third trip in the time machine is another combination of two episodes into a parking lot-sized one from Season 2 where Brent, Patrick, and Sunny cover two opposing myths about time and Agile (mostly discussing Scrum as “Agile”): that Agile doesn’t have deadlines or takes too much time.

  • Episode 137: It’s Very Hard To Push This New Initiative

    In our second trip down memory lane, we’re combining two episodes into a parking lot-sized one from Season 2 (Episodes 42, and 43). The conversation with Mark, Patrick, and Ryan starts on the challenges of sharing resources across teams. In the second half, we planned to discuss managing resources, but took a pivot.

  • Episode 136: Need Leaders Who Are Listeners

    In our first rerun, we revisit Psychological Safety from season three with Jesse Mar Chun and Teresa Kremer. They discuss the Westrum Culture survey, the benefits of a generative culture, and how an Agile and DevOps environment benefits from a safe environment starting at the top of the organization.

  • Episode 135: Still Trying To Flesh It All Out.

    We have news about season five to share. Thanks for listening, supporting, and welcome to some reruns!

  • Episode 134: Purpose Is Such A Strong Motivator

    Brent, Dennis, and Philipp have a conversation about Domain Driven Design (DDD). As part of the discussion, they also cover the relationships with microservices, design thinking, the various classifications in DDD and the Business Model Canvas.

  • Episode 133: Commit To One And See If It Works

    In this iteration, Brent, Gus, and Justin take a request from a listener and start the conversation about maintenance-focused teams and whether or not they should be a Scrum team or a Kanban team. The conversation also goes down a path about selection biases for coaches and scrum masters.

  • Episode 132: Recognize What They Can Do Better Next Time

    In the last iteration of the Cloud Mindset series, Brent and Markus have a parking lot-sized conversation about failure and how it relates to Empowerment and Delegation. They discuss the three types of failure from Amy Edmondson, how failure works in an agile environment, and how teams can improve from experimentation.

  • Episode 131: Two Sides Of The Same Thing

    In the next iteration of the Cloud Mindset series, Brent and Markus discuss the principle of Empowerment and Delegation. They cover Decision Poker, Delegation Poker, the agile value of courage, and how multipliers are used in an agile setting.

  • Episode 130: Far Superior To The Fibonacci Sequence

    In this parking lot (but regular length) iteration as part of the Cloud Mindset series, Brent, Michael, and Ryan discuss story points in a data-driven process. The conversation includes gamification of estimation, how teams need to buy into whatever process is used, metaphors for teams, venting egos, as well as physics.
