Agile Chicago Style Podcast

Mike Marchi returns to the show with Jeff Singleton.  Both are board members of the Agile Professional Learning Network - Chicago Chapter.

We talk about a recent discussion at the APLN meetup, how the Agile Community sustains itself.  We also talk about how internal organizations may sabotage their own efforts to create sustainable communities.

Also, the APLN is hosting their 3rd Annual Conference on May 16th, 2019.  They are still accepting speaker proposals.  Checkout their website for more info.

Maria Matarelli (Woman-of-all-trades) and I talk about some visualization techniques we've used in the classroom.  Both of us discovered Neuland markers at different times, and put off learning how to use them to their full potential.  Using Bikablo examples and techniques, we've learned that art will engage the learner much more readily.


In the second half of the episode, Maria and I tackle some Coaching questions we get quite often:

  • The Team is just not estimating right
  • We can't POSSIBLY get anything done in a 2-week timebox!
  • There are a ton of Process Cops already, why do we need a ScrumMaster too?
