This video, newly released on BERTEIG’s YouTube Channel, reminds leaders of their responsibility to communicate the vision to their organization. Check out the 2-minute video for valuable insight into the process.
Woman: “Is this a girl thing?”
Man: “No, there’s some pretty whiney people in QA that are both guys and girls.”
Okay, okay, all kidding aside…It’s easy to get a chuckle out of noticing that retrospectives can bring up emotions for people, both men and women, inside or outside of QA.
This is not to poke fun at any gender or any department but just to share some light humour around how emotional the process can be for everyone.
This emotional connection is, in fact, one of the humanizing aspects of Agile methods. Our emotions are what make us human and being agile is about being more human.
This video made me smile and I hope it makes you smile too!
Have you ever wanted to run an agile project?
Or maybe you are a leader in an organization who has had an agile coach approach you requesting to run an agile project?
This light & comical sketch depicts the often humorous interactions between agile coaches and corporate leaders in various departments.
At the end of this clip, the agile coach has spoken with a CEO, Human Resources, Financial Department, etc and when he goes back to the first CEO he’s had a lot of conversations about his project, but it has not yet started.
The concept of two operating models existing within the same space is so clearly illustrated here. The one framework is about upfront-planning, documentation, assessment and projection of a plan. The other framework (Agile) is about very little upfront planning with a “jump-in-and-get-started” attitude. Adjustments are made along the way with continuous reflection and learning. The product continues to improve and is ready to deliver sooner.
The most successful businesses in the world are the ones where Agile methods have been adopted in every level of an organization.
It is just changing everything.
BERTEIG’s David Sabine presented “Rethinking Education” at the first ever TedX talk in Fort McMurray, Alberta in 2012!
“Rethinking Education” has received nearly 3000 views and offers an insightful perspective into the way youth are streamlined into either vocational or educational career paths, and the funding which supports curriculum development. He even addresses important issues such as gender bias. I like how David sees Agile Transformation as having a positive influence on change in our current educational model and how he invites a radical approach to a new way to think about education.
I absolutely love how he combines his background in music composition with his professional training as an Agile Coach at a time when his personal life was changing with the upcoming birth of his daughter. He says “What we need is a common understanding, for a collective effort, for a collective benefit. That is how collaboration will manifest in our social system.”
What an encouraging and inspiring presentation! Please watch the video and share your thoughts on how you would like to see our social education model change now for the future.
