The Agile Guru – Not!
I was in shock, the other day. Really.
Yes, me getting shocked, after so many years in practice, hardly a believable start of a real story.
But it really happened, in front of my eyes. And I was in shock, for just a bit.
It was a clear demonstration of some of what is so wrong with a common way of “implementing agile”.
I saw someone with the title of agile coach being called “Guru, sir”. By his student. And he did not change that. His Ego and Power ATM just opened up to accept the dollar notes.
I had to reach for the toilet (virtually). Read the rest of this entry »
Great news network! We are building a new enterprise lean-agile team to support our clients in Oklahoma!
We are hiring Agile coaches (preferably SAFe© SPC4 and RTE’s) and Agile Scrum masters at all career levels. I am the chief career experience servant leader for the team. Private message me for more information and an interview request. Not all requests will receive a reply, apologies. I will be screening your detailed LinkedIn profile (+ me so I can see it).

Big letter “A” Agile experience required. Be prepared to explain in detail your knowledge, understanding, philosophy of Agile mindset, values and principles. Excellent, well rounded communication skills are an absolute requirement. SAFe experience is encouraged, but other scaling frameworks are also acceptable. We do best practices, not framework wars.
No third party queries please. Many thanks to those that have already communicated. We are still in progress, not done done yet. WIP limits…

I can’t say that I agree at all with Dave Snowden’s approach to communication. The guy is rough around the edges, a “perpetual curmudgeon” in his own words. And that is describing it kindly. He does have some good ideas on decision making though. Read the rest of this entry »
I am really thrilled to learn more about the Scaled Agile Framework after going through the SPC course and certification process. A big thank you to Eric Willeke as he is an amazing instructor and has clearly mastered the material. I am not a fan of certifications as a KPI for job applicants. Only as indicators of formal education on subject matter. In this case, SAFe brings meaning and harmony to many, many things that we have all been doing for so many years. At least now I have a beautiful framework to show when I talk about organizational transformation, e2 maximization, transparency, alignment, and relentless improvement!
