Agile Thoughts Magazine

Agile thoughts is a free online magazine that aims to disclose experiences and enable meaning-full connections. The editors collect treasures from bold agile thinkers and share them with their readers. The May Issue is the third edition of Agile Thoughts and takes a look at some issues and misunderstandings around Agile.  Read it to discover the story behind the following statements:

“To increase impact, refinement should be seen as a process, not just as a meeting.”
“An Agile framework is a structure into which different Agile development practices are inserted.”
“Getting a team to have an open and constructive conversation about future risks and challenges is hard.”
“Talking to your younger self is always beneficial.”
“With bad leadership, no framework, methodology, or process will succeed.”
“As a manager, facilitator, coach or trainer it is important to be aware of Zoom fatigue.”

I am pleased to share my thoughts on refinement and encourage you to read my ideas and those of Raj Nagappan, Steven Gruyters, Michaele Gardner, Philippa Fewell and John Chen.

The magazine is free, but you’ll need to register. See the Agile Thoughts Website.
