    Social engineering is the act of influencing someone to take an action that may or may not be in their best interest.
    Intent plays a crucial role in determining whether social engineering is positive or negative.
    Imposter syndrome is a universal human experience, but the way it is expressed can differ between generations and genders.
    Self-awareness is key to understanding and managing imposter syndrome and can be used to be a better servant leader.
    Understanding the emotions and motivations of others can help build empathy and improve relationships. Look beneath the surface when someone behaves badly and consider their underlying needs.
    Understand your own communication style and be aware of how it may impact others.
    Seek credible information and be cautious of misinformation, especially in the field of psychology.
    Take courses and read books to improve your communication skills and personal development.

    What's The Next Most Important Thing to Learn with Scott Sehlhorst

    I’m testing out the AI Generated Summary…

    In this conversation, Dave Prior and Scott Sehlhorst discuss the importance of improving the product plan while executing it. They explore the common problem of companies jumping straight into execution without considering what they should build and why. Scott emphasizes the need to shift from a mindset of control to one of influence, where product managers focus on solving problems and creating value for customers and the business. They also discuss the concept of uncertainty and sensitivity and how to navigate it using impact mapping to identify needs and changes. In this conversation, Scott Sehlhorst discusses the importance of shifting into a business model and the need to create changes and hypotheses. He emphasizes the process of narrowing down the target population and quantifying the impact of changes. Scott also highlights the significance of determining sensitivity and making connections between cause and effect. He introduces the confidence rubric and explains how to prioritize experiments. The conversation concludes with the idea of constantly improving the plan and focusing on the next most important thing to learn.


    Companies often jump straight into execution without considering what they should build and why.
    Product managers should shift from a mindset of control to one of influence, focusing on solving problems and creating value for customers and the business.
    Uncertainty and sensitivity are inherent in product development, and it is impossible to know everything before building a product.
    Using impact mapping can help identify needs and changes, allowing for experimentation and learning in an uncertain environment. Shifting into a business model involves creating changes and hypotheses.
    Narrowing down the target population is crucial for effective experimentation.
    Quantifying the impact of changes helps determine the potential outcomes.
    Using a confidence rubric can aid in decision-making and prioritization.

    Fixing PI planning with Alan Dayley

    Fixing PI planning with Alan Dayley

    Alan Dayley is back to help me continue the quest of figuring out why so many companies are struggling with PI Planning or quarterly planning. During the interview, we discuss some of the reasons organizations struggle with this type of planning. We address the topic from the perspective of senior leadership, why they want it, how they often approach it, and the challenges that creates. We also explore the way the request is often interpreted by the Development Teams, how they often respond, and how critical it is that they have the time needed to understand the request and the freedom to respond in a way that is responsible to the organization.

    Alan is a SAFe Program Consultant, so during the conversation he also explains how PI planning is supposed to work if you are truly following SAFe.

    … and, Developers are not batteries

    Making Sense of Co-Pilots, Agents, and Changes in AI with Snehal Talati

    Making Sense of Co-Pilots, Agents, and Changes in AI with Snehal Talati

    Keeping up with what is happening in AI is no small task. You probably know some folks who spend a lot of free time learning how to bend (insert AI flavor of the week) to their will, there are folks who are preaching to anyone who will listen about all the amazing things that are right around the corner, and then there are the folks who just periodically peek over their shoulder and say “Yeah, um… let me know when you’ve got this bit actually working.”

    And then there are people like Snehal Talati. I met Snehal last year at the Scrum Gathering and we did a podcast about http://aiagile.org, the community he started to bring Agilists together to ensure that the intersection between the Agile space and AI happens in an intentional and thoughtful way.

    It’s been 8 months since that podcast was posted and that’s like 20 years in the AI space. So Snehal is back to share what’s been happening in AI and Agile. and to talk about the free course he built for the Scrum Alliance to help folks get started. During our conversation, Snehal gives an update on some of the newer changes and challenges in AI and he also offers real-life examples of how AI is becoming a powerful part of his personal productivity.

    5 Things You Can Do to Fix Your Sprint Planning

    5 Things You Can Do to Fix Your Sprint Planning

    If you are on one of those teams that has made a habit of dragging unfinished work from one Sprint to the next... YOU NEED TO STOP!
    When you get to the end of a Sprint and have work that isn't done, you can't show it to the stakeholders in the Sprint Review. If you don't show it to Stakeholders in the Sprint Review, you can't get feedback. And if you can't get feedback, you can't inspect and adapt, and you negate the entire point of working in a Sprint.

    This podcast offers five things that you and your team can do
    right now to stop carrying over unfinished work and start enabling Scrum to provide you with the results you and your organization were hoping for when you headed down the path to agility.
