    218 - The Value of Taking Breaks

    Remember the https://www.meta-cast.com/episode/episode-182-dont-get-pickled (old "pickling" episode)? We do, and we realized that we are, in fact, pickled!!! Uh oh!!!!
    So what are we going to do about it? The same thing you should do if you and/or your team are stuck in a rut. Stop and figure out what version 2 of you or your team should look like. After that's done, start mapping out your journey to achieve that evolution. Finally, start evolving and crushing everything in your way.
    That's what we're off to do! See you in October! Yes. October.

    215 - Leaving a Company Like a Pro

    215 - Leaving a Company Like a Pro

    In many industries, the concept of staying with a company for 30+ years and retiring doesn't exist anymore. Heck, many of the companies out there haven't even been around for 30 years. That means you're going to have to leave a company at some point. What's the best approach to that situation? Bob and Josh share their thoughts, but we'd love to hear yours. Let's discuss!

Enjoying the Agile conversation with Bob

I’m not from the IT world, and I recently (and accidentally) discovered Agile as a project-management approach. I am enjoying the perspective of Agile solutions can be to ANY complex problem that benefits from breaking down by a team where all the players have input arriving a the solution. Bob
