Agile in the Ether #26 / 18th September

Was on Friday 18th September

We talked about:

  • Strategies for difficult people in Retros  
  • Question / discussion – Any experience of coaching with neuro-diverse teams?
  • Been mulling over the idea/concept of how do we prioritise team socials in this remote world.  Have you discussed/tackled this? 
  • A step of understanding the problems, validating them and agreeing the ways to deliver a solution is disregarded at my work. How would you persuade people who are too keen to jump into providing a solution?

    15min a virtual coffee every day

    Discord audio channels

    Taking phone calls and walks outside

    Adding an extra 15-20m before/after the regular meetings for general bants. Folk can opt-in or opt-out as they like.

This article comes to mind: What we consider legacy is relative to our world-view (project-thinking, not product thinking, creates legacy). https://blog.usejournal.com/toxic-technology-the-growing-legacy-threat-b95ad098a339
