In this Agile On The Beach session entitled ‘Seven Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Teams Do’ by Ilan Kirschenbaum.
Back in 2007 Gever Tulley wrote a book (and TED Talk) on 50 dangerous things you should let your kids do. Stuff like drive a car, or operate machines, etc. A “Do Try This At Home” kind of thing. That got me thinking on: What should leaders let their teams do? In this talk from Ilan he reviews some possible examples, and discusses what are the conditions that should exist in order to make this safe-to-fail. He then walk-throughs designing an experiment for one dangerous thing you can safely take away and try in your own team – if you dare!
Ilan Kirschenbaum, Agile Coach
Practical Agile Since he owned a Sinclair ZX81 Ilan knew he wants to be a programmer. Which he did with great enthusiasm. Until one day he found that the small company he was working for turned into a big, process-rich, document- hungry mammoth. Programming and software projects were not so much fun anymore. Then he found Agile (or rather Agile found him where he worked). The concept reminded him how much fun software development can be. Today Ilan loves helping hi-tech professionals fall in love with their workplace, so they can help their customers love the products that they make.
