Dysfunctions in Immature Teams, with Jim Sammons

A great friend of the show, Jim Sammons of Loop Agility, joins us to talk about dysfunctions we've seen in immature teams. In between Rick telling long-winded stories, we discuss coaching approaches, how we inspire change, letting teams solve their own problems, empowerement and dis-empowerment. We discuss estimation, coaching at the team level - my favorite! We share some stories about customers suffering because of internal beuracracy. I relate experiences where timing is everything - getting coaches involved at the right time can make all the difference in your Agility efforts. Conferences in and around Chicago Agile Professional Learning Network - Chicago Chapter Conference - June 13th, 2019

Visualization and Collaboration

Maria Matarelli (Woman-of-all-trades) and I talk about some visualization techniques we've used in the classroom. Both of us discovered Neuland markers at different times, and put off learning how to use them to their full potential. Using Bikablo examples and techniques, we've learned that art will engage the learner much more readily. In the second half of the episode, Maria and I tackle some Coaching questions we get quite often: The Team is just not estimating right We can't POSSIBLY get anything done in a 2-week timebox! There are a ton of Process Cops already, why do we need a ScrumMaster too?

Agile Fluency with Ahmed Avais

At the Agile Professional Learning Network - Chicago Chapter's 2017 conference, Paul Madison and I had the opportunity to talk with Ahmed Avais about the Agile Fluency Project. Ahmed had almost literally just finished his presentation on the Agile Fluency Model when Paul sat him down and asked him about it. Ahmed told Paul about the 4 zones of Fluency Focus on Value Deliver Value Optimize Value Optimize for Systems The Agile Fluency is different than Maturity Models in that one team cannot be compared to another (therefor weaponizing the model) Ahmed also explains Fluency through the Tarzan example. Tarzan matured relative to his environment - swinging on vines hanging from trees, etc. But, his language fluency never quite developed, and his vocabulary very limited - “Me Tarzan. You Jane.” With a larger vocabulary and more practice at speaking to other humans, Tarzan has a chance to communicate with humans. Without the necessary practice he will either continue at his current flue...
