I hear “Yanny.” Now, how often is it in business that people “hear” or “perceive” different things based on the same communication?
We must seek out ways to break down communications to accommodate different perspectives, hearing, and understanding to baseline what is heard, perceived and understood to achieve a state of “reception consensus.”

Any two-day course is only the beginning. In two days, you are getting exposed to a breadth of knowledge about Scrum. If you are lucky enough to learn Scrum from a provider that includes Bowman’s Back of the Room and/or Gamification techniques then you will also be exposed to a surface level experience of how Scrum is intended to work.
Well, it has been twelve days since I first published the NPS survey for blogagility.com. What are people saying about blogagility? Not much. At all. I’m fairly certain that most of the 2,000 views and 1,500 visitors each month are bots. For you humans out there reading the blog… thank you.
In summary, it appears that a few things are going on. First, the sample size was extremely low with only 9 responses. That in of itself points to a challenge. Next, the majority of the responses were negative, resulting in a -22 NPS. Not great as you can see from the chart below.
There were mostly detractors in the responses (5 detractors, 3 promoters, 1 passive).
There was one promoter, to whom I am very grateful to for the comment quoted below. The survey was anonymous.
1. It presents its view without bias. 2. Its information is very relevant to the present and future agile approach. 3. Most I like about this blog is, although short I always learn from the blog. Short, to the point and knowledgeable. – anonymous survey respondent
I will have to rethink my original intent for this blog. I enjoy helping people in the community immensely. But the expense in money and time may not be a good value and ROI.
The blog has over 1600 e-mail subscribers, receives over 2,000+ views and 1,500+ unique visitors each month as of April 2018. I deeply appreciate your support, feedback, and connections!
I have created an NPS survey for BLOGAGILITY.com. I would sincerely appreciate your feedback on the blog and its content. Based on the survey feedback, I will be making a determination on whether or not to continue investing time and money into the project.
The survey will run into the first few weeks of May 2018. I will collect the results and post them here.
Check out the amazing things that high performance, motivated teams can do. This is business agility and Lean-Agile culture at its best. The transformation of my client’s organization is amazing. We are using Lean, Agile, Scrum, Kanban (and systems thinking), SAFe®, OrgMindset®, and other tools to inspire and persuade a positive change in culture at the FAA-ESC.
It is hard work, but it is worth every minute of it. It isn’t perfect, but the results are significant and measurable. The “why” was a burning platform. Now, just a few PI’s later, it is a thriving platform. We focus on the goals, not the tools to achieve positive business outcomes.
Congratulations to Team Armada for winning the “Relentless Improvers” innovation football for PI6.
Big kudos to John Wiese and his team for putting together an awe-inspiring PI System Demo.
Special thanks to the FAA-ESC, John Wiese, and teams for providing permission to publish the video under the safe harbor notice/policy. Also, special thanks to Matt Taylor for sharing a different video perspective as a content contributor.
