TL; DR: Agile Bedside Manners, Deep Listening — Food for Agile Thought #258

Welcome to the 258th edition of the Food for Agile Thought newsletter, shared with 27,014 peers. This week, we delve into agile bedside manners; we revisit the frustrating effect of lacking psychological safety, and we study the 2020 update to the Agile-Consulting Radar.

We then reflect on why Agile and UX seem to be at odds most of the time; we applaud a step-by-step guide to prioritizing your Product Backlog, and we discover success factors of integrating product discovery and product delivery.

Lastly, we enjoy a conversation on the costs of not listening, the opportunities of listening, and why hearing what’s unsaid has a transformative effect.
