The Modern Agile Show

Over the past decade, innovative companies, software industry thought leaders and lean/agile pioneers have discovered simpler, sturdier, more streamlined ways to be agile. These modern approaches share a focus on producing exceptional outcomes and growing an outstanding culture. Today, it makes far more sense to bypass antiquated agility in favor of modern approaches. Modern agile methods are defined by four guiding principles: Make People Awesome; Make Safety a Prerequisite; Experiment and Learn Rapidly and Deliver Value Continuously. World famous organizations like Google, Amazon, AirBnB, Etsy and others are living proof of the power of these four principles. However, you don’t need to be a name brand company to leverage modern agile wisdom.

He believes that the biggest impact you can have in a software team is to get members of the team sitting next to people using the software and learning from what they observe. He explains how Continuous Compliance flows out of Continuous Delivery to provide rich, valuable audits trails for auditors.Finally, Dave tells us about how he Makes Safety A Prerequisite via "unconditional positive regard” (a concept he learned from his wife, Katherine) and how he creates high-trust team environments.
