    How To Learn From a Disagreement About Agile - Mike Cohn

    How To Learn From a Disagreement About Agile - Mike Cohn

    How To Learn From a Disagreement About Agile - Mike Cohn

    A reply I got recently to one of these weekly email tips began with, “Mike, you’re wrong.” The reply then went on to summarize that person’s experience and how it led to his conclusion that I’m wrong.But I wasn’t wrong. And neither was he.Whenever I disagree with someone, I try to begin from the perspective that we are both right. (Except in the case of whether Han shot first. He did.)If you and I disagree and begin with the assumption that we are both right, we’re going to have a better conversation. Instead of each trying to persuade the other that we’re right, we instead try to figure out why we view something differently.Putting this in an agile context, our different opinions have been formed by the projects and teams we’ve worked with. Since our experiences were different, the conclusions we draw and opinions we form can be different.As an example, suppose two people are arguing about how much upfront design should be done on agile projects. Their different opinions could arise from one having experience building very simple websites and the other having experience developing large systems in highly regulated domains.As another example, I have a different opinion than those advocating “No Estimates.” But rather than thinking they’re wrong, I want to understand how their and my experiences could have led us to different opinions.Maybe we’ve worked on projects of different sizes. Or we worked with companies with different cultures and attitudes toward planning. Or we were required to make more or fewer commitments to customers, marketing, or external stakeholders such as public or private investors.When people disagree, I don’t find it very useful to engage in a bare-knuckle brawl to determine who is right. That’s often fruitless, frustrating, and just leads to more entrenched thinking on both sides.Figuring out why we may disagree is much more productive, and a surer way to succeed with agile.

    What Is Waste Snake? Is It Agile?

    What Is Waste Snake? Is It Agile?

    What Is Waste Snake? Is It Agile?

    The concept of a "waste snake" isn't a standard term in any major discipline or practice that I'm familiar with. It might be a term from a specific niche or a new concept that hasn’t widely circulated. However, if this term is being used in a context similar to process improvement or systems efficiency, it could potentially refer to a visualization or tracking method for waste in a system, similar to tools used in Lean management like value stream mapping.

    In Lean methodology, "waste" refers to any activity that consumes resources but creates no value for the customer. Common types of waste include defects, overproduction, waiting, non-utilized talent, transportation, inventory, motion, and extra-processing. A "snake" in this context could metaphorically represent the way waste moves or grows through a system, suggesting a need to identify and eliminate it continuously.

AgileDad has the treasure map!!

It is often said that Agile is easy to learn and hard to master; this is true for many disciplines UNLESS you’re lucky enough to train under a master. Well, if you are looking to wield an Agile sword, consider yourself lucky that you found this podcast!!

V. Lee and his team have the unique ability to bring clarity to the Agile cacophony being tossed around out there. Perfectly times at 10 minutes, each episode offers a gold nugget designed to help you make sense of your current situation and help you inspect and adapt for better performance.
