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.
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”.
The theme for the month of May was "Product Ownership". In this Q&A-styled session, agile42 coaches Daniel Lynn and Lothar Fischmann, shared their thoughts and experience on "What makes a great Product Owner?". Watch the recording of the live session here.
Our agile42 Community is an inspiring new place where we will continue supporting you in your growth and development as Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and Agile Coaches. Each month we will have a theme around which we’ll create events and activities, and stimulate discussions. Learn from this community and get support from our agile42 coaches and trainers.
What do chickens, defensiveness and collaboration have in common? I think that was a question which certainly peaked our audiences interest. Our latest webinar on
In Part 2 of our "collaboration" series, agile42 coach Mariet Visser, provides her take on the new collaborative environment we're finding ourselves in. Collaboration is a skill we constantly need to work at and is something which evolves over time. As our context and the people with whom we work shifts, so does how we collaborate. Collaboration heavily relies on trust and our ability to be open & honest with one another; something that can be much more difficult to achieve in a virtual setting.
With this principle, we propose that organizational change should be addressed in an agile way, through small continuous experimental adaptations. By leveraging “the adjacent possible" and the predispositions of the organization — small changes that people propose themselves — we reduce the risks and side-effects of change.
Regina Martins, kicks off the first of a 2 part series on "collaboration". She believes collaboration isn't just a learned skill, instead it requires an intimate knowledge of our own defensive behaviours. By being self-aware we can recognise when our behaviour is creating blockers to forming collaborative relationships. She will be tapping into 50 of these defensive behaviours in her webinar later this month.
