Today, we’re asking the question: What is the best Agile? To help us answer that question, we have invited Diana Larsen to join us for today’s episode. Diana is the co-founder of FutureWorks Consulting in Portland, Oregon, and she partners with leaders around the world to design work systems, improve team performance, and transition to Agile methods. She is also the author of a number of books about Agile and, in this episode, we start with the best ways to approach Agile depending on what it it you’re trying to accomplish. Diana takes us through the limits and constraints a team might encounter, how to avoid a backlog of work, and how Agile has focused our attention on necessary software, meeting budgets, and keeping deadlines. We also discuss the different zones needed for a successful product, from optimizing to strengthening, and Diana shares a bit about what the Agile Fluency Project does and the tools that they use. For all this and more, tune in today!
