Food for Agile Thought’s issue #156—shared with 18,778 peers—focuses on servant leadership, why change cannot be rushed, and how one road to enterprise business agility may look like.
We also have a look at mental models for product managers/owner; we learn how free time from our schedules to run user interviews regularly, and how to avoid failure when reaching for product/market fit.
Lastly, we like to thank Bartosz for compiling a great list of resources to help us to apply servant leadership in the trenches. 🙏
Have a great week!
