    Metrics Based Process Mapping w/ Philip Double

    Metrics Based Process Mapping w/ Philip Double

    Finding where to apply your creative thinking to either improve a process or digitize it into software can be challenging. There's often much confusion as to what the process even looks like in its entirety - confusion amongst even those who use the process daily! Yep - that happens a LOT, folks 😅
    But what if you could map out a process visualize and analyze it using plain language that brings all cross-functional skillsets together and aligned in understanding and focus?

    Joining us on this episode is Philip Double, Managing Front-end Architect with Red Hat Open Innovation Labs. Philip talks to us about how Metrics-Based Process Mapping (MBPM) is a great practice to map out a process, provide understanding for all team members and stakeholders, and highlight areas where the team can apply its creative thinking to improve the overall experience and value of the process.

    Definition of Ready and Done w/ Brian Tomlinson

    Definition of Ready and Done w/ Brian Tomlinson

    What do you mean I need to write down what it means for work to be ready and done? That's pretty obvious, isn't it Klint??
    Jeez, Klint...

    Well guess what? Klint is right. How your team defines work that is ready to be picked up and when exactly it is fully completed may differ from the team next to you...and it should!

    On this episode, Brian Tomlinson, Transformation Architect at Red Hat, joins us to talk about the importance of clearly defining when work is ready and done for your specific team - and how to do it. So take a danged break from your computer screen or phone and give it a listen already!
