TL; DR: Remote Agile (Part 2): Virtual Liberating Structures

Based on that article, I also ran a live virtual class, the recording of which will be made available soon on the Age-of-Product’s Youtube channel. This follow-up post now delves into virtual Liberating Structures, answering the question of how we can make use of the powerful toolbox of inclusive and collaborative practices in a remote setting.

Food for Agile Thought #231: Liberating Structures, Tyranny of the Measurable, Beautiful Mess of Change, #NoOKRs Team Objectives

TL; DR: Liberating Structures, Beautiful Mess—Food for Agile Thought #231

Welcome to the 231st edition of the Food for Agile Thought newsletter, shared with 25,467 peers. This week, we learn about Liberating Structures and change for everyone; we point at the perils of measuring a complex reality, and we get a better understanding of where business agility is heading.

We also enjoy John Cutler’s excursion into embracing change successfully; we gain insight into three ways of making decisions in complex situations, and we listen to why OKRs may not provide the right objectives for a product team.

Lastly, we look back at the evolution of Haier’s organizational model and how self-organization and refrigerators go hand-in-hand.

Food for Agile Thought #213: Liberating Structures Rescue Scrum, Pair Coaching, Stakeholder Buy-in, Magic Prioritization Bullet

Food for Agile Thought’s issue #213—shared with 23,845 peers—delves into how Liberating Structures rescue Scrum; we borrow Swedish ideas on agile leadership beyond the so-called ‘Spotify model,’ and we learn to create an environment that is attractive to introverts.

We also consider pair coaching; we learn how to include stakeholders in product decisions while managing their expectations, and we dare to look at some math, namely Cost of Delay.

Lastly, we shed light on Mr. Amazon’s grand plan for the universe.
