TL; DR: Creative Adaptability, Applied NoEstimates—Food for Agile Thought #242

Welcome to the 242nd edition of the Food for Agile Thought newsletter, shared with 26,503 peers. This week, we thank Keith and Fisher for insight into how Liberating Structures foster creative adaptability; we apply NoEstimates techniques and philosophy in real life, and we understand critical issues of distributed team building.

We also applaud a new product discovery guide; we learn how OKRs propelled Gmail massive success, and we tackle remote design’s most significant issues.

Lastly, we learn how to remove organizational silos following a new mental model.
