    Icebreakers w/ Jen Brown

    Icebreakers. Woof. We've seen them go well, and we've seen them...well....on the caliber of the Star Wars prequels.
    So what makes the good ones good and the bad ones bad? And what's the REAL point of icebreakers in the first place?? Do they even HAVE a point? SO MANY QUESTIONS! 

    Joining us on this episode is Jen Brown, founder, facilitator, curriculum designer, and organizer. Jen answers all out questions about icebreakers - like what makes a good icebreaker and how to pick the right one for the group you're working with. She also shares some of her favs that you can try with your team!

    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!
