EN FRANÇAIS : Le pouvoir du management visuel

Raz la casquette de Jira? Les outils de management de tableaux virtuels sont pratiques, mais dans un certain sens, ils troublent la communication d’une équipe. Lorsque l’équipe possède une certaine maturité cela ne pose plus de problème, mais avant… Bastien est convaincu qu’un tableau physique est un véritable avantage pour augmenter la communication, l’agilité et le fun au sein d’une équipe.

Josh Anderson on the process of unlearning for teams and individuals

When building a team you want to hire the right people. With the right experience, and willingness to apply Agile in their work. That’s a great idea in theory, but in practice every workplace is different. Every team is new. And to adapt to the new place we need to learn to work in a new way. Josh shares with us a story of a team that he hired but found out that their concept and experience of “agile” was not what was needed. Learn how Josh helped those team members “unlearn” the old habits and succeed with agile in a new organization.

Jens Broos on Business agility and the Agility Ladder

When we start as Scrum Masters we have a lot in our plate just focusing on the team, and their deliveries. However, over time, we identify obstacles to the team’s work that are coming from the organization’s lack of adoption. In this Episode we describe a model (AgilityLadder.nl) that describes two types of Agile adoption. The IT value perspectives, and the Business value perspective. Jens uses this model to help identify possible obstacles to the team that come from the wider organization.
