Are we paying attention to the important human factors of coherence, psychological safety, and trust that connect us in the virtual and physical spaces where we gather? In July, agile42 coach Michèle Twomey, alongside our special guest Sonja Blignaut from More Beyond, explored this question and some of the hybrid models we are testing that enable essential human contact during agile transitions.
Our long-time partner, Sonja Blignaut from More Beyond, shares her insights on human factors within the realm of "complexity". She addresses the notion that, if we force too much change on people, we compromise their sense of coherence. Ultimately we need to think about limiting the change in progress, the same way we limit work in progress within agile transformations.
agile42 coach, Michéle Twomey, kicks off this two-part series on "Human Factors in Agile Transformations". In this video interview, Michéle gives us her take on Gerald M. Weinberg's statement: “all problems are people problems”. She also delves into what human factors one needs to consider in agile transformations as well as her sources of inspiration in her own journey of understanding human factors.
In this Q&A style webinar, agile42 coach Martin von Weissenberg, alongside our special guest Dave Snowden, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Cognitive Edge, discuss the way agile and digitilisation are intertwined, and why it’s misleading to think of digitalisation as a one-time “transformation”.
