Food for Agile Thought #221: Flow Thinking, Trust Building, North Star Playbook, Prediction & Planning

TL; DR: Flow Thinking, Trust Building, North Star Playbook, Prediction & Planning — Food for Agile Thought #221

Food for Agile Thought’s issue #221—shared with 24,513 peers—addresses the evolution of flow thinking; we delve into visualizing of forecasts, OKR, and non-static roadmaps, and we learn how to build professional trust in the workspace.

We also appreciate a new guide on north star metrics; we face our industry’s dismal track record regarding dealing with uncertainty, and we agree on that product strategies shouldn’t be executed blindly, but inspected and adapted like all the rest.

Lastly, we thank Allan Holub for voicing the obvious: when teamwork becomes the new standard, HR techniques from the Roaring Twenties need to be ditched.

Food for Agile Thought #220: Taylorism & Agile, Kick-Start Self-Organization, Product vs. Company Strategy, PM Time Allocation

TL; DR: Taylorism & Agile, Kick-Start Self-Organization — Food for Agile Thought #220

Food for Agile Thought’s issue #220—shared with 24,421 peers—asks whether Taylorism is probably less of a villain than often believed; we get back to the agile-industrial complex, and we appreciate a simple introduction on how to kick-start self-organization.

We then learn more about value propositions in niche markets; we can compare our activities as product managers with the results of a recent study, and we listen to a discussion on six critical ingredients for a great product strategy.

Lastly, we consider a heretic thought: might the benefit of team longevity be overrated?
