    Is Agile dead or are agile people just bitter that they don't recognize it anymore?

    Is Agile a relic of a bygone era or a methodology evolving right before our eyes? We grapple with this conundrum, reminiscing about Agile's humble beginnings and its expansion, much like the growth of the NHL. With Ken Rickard and guest insights from Michael Laurie of Bayer, this episode is a deep dive into the essence of Agile in today's fast-paced world. We talk about transforming the managerial landscape, where companies like Morningstar are pioneering high-trust, high-accountability environments, questioning the very role of a traditional manager in the process.

    Agile's philosophical underpinnings take center stage as we discuss its commercialization and how newer generations embed it into their work culture—almost instinctively. We unfold the layers of Agile's metamorphosis, scrutinizing movements like "Take Agile Back" and Agile Uprising that challenge homogenized frameworks. With Donna Jones's perspectives on resilience and stewardship, we explore the intricacies of leading transformational journeys and the pivotal role of transparency in steering organizations towards true agility.

    Navigating the turbulent waters of organizational change, we look at the adaptive landscape that modern enterprises must traverse to survive and thrive. Shedding light on the transformative shifts in structure and culture, we ponder Agile's future and the evolving role of leadership. The discussion culminates with an affirmation that Agile is far from extinct; instead, it's an ever-adapting discipline that beckons continuous learning and flexibility. Join us as we chart the course of business agility and the enduring search for organizational resilience.

    Join hosts Ken Rickard and Jason Little for this exciting episode of That Change Show.

The episode doesn't shy away from the tough questions: Can AI enhance user experiences without reducing the human touch to a mere algorithm? Tune in to see how AI might offer a lens to interpret help articles and documentation, potentially speeding up the process without fully supplanting human judgment.

    Finally, I share a piece of my journey in embracing AI as a technical ally in the realm of problem-solving. It's about the mindset shift needed for change managers to work alongside AI, treating it not just as a tool but as a colleague. We ponder on the evolution of professional roles with advancing technology, akin to the transition from web designers to full-stack developers. And if you're curious about the ethical conundrums AI brings to the table, stay tuned for a sneak peek at an entire episode dedicated to that very topic.
