Doing What is Impossible Tactics for Tech Leadership (TTL)

    • Management

From pair programming to NoEstimates, the industry brims with creative minds proposing new ideas and methodologies to tackle longstanding challenges. The issue, however, isn't the scarcity of innovative concepts, but rather the failure to implement them, often dismissed with the notion "it won't work" ... or, in other words, "it's impossible."



In this episode, Andy and Mon-Chaio delve into the psychology behind the significant hesitation to consider provocative yet potentially beneficial new ideas. To illustrate this resistance in a practical context, they discuss two longstanding processes that, despite their potential, are seldom utilized. They dissect the mental barriers that lead us to deem things "impossible" and offer practical strategies to overcome these obstacles, in their ongoing quest to create more modern and impactful development organizations.
