Studying up on Lippitt / Knoster change models I learned about from Construx videos. Steve McConnell of course being one of the greatest software development thought leaders is the presenter. Interesting how these change theories are baked into some of the Agile frameworks and mindsets like the SAFe / Agile Manifesto. As a coach, these are useful strategies on how to build our approach to managing change (like fear, unknowns, budgeting/money, et cetera).

Focus on family with an Agile mindset and Scrum.
I read a parenting article a few months ago about family dinner table discussions with your kids. It was great stuff. The recommendations centered around three questions. 1. What was the favorite part of your day? 2. What was the least favorite part of your day? 3. Is there anything else that you want to talk about? Amazingly, just like in the Scrum ceremony these questions generate amazing discussion (collaboration) with the family. My three children have become accustomed to the ceremony now. So, it is even more fun playing the experience through. Anything that I can do to bring my family closer together as a unit is premium! Sound familiar?
