Within this podcast we learn what exactly a Lean Start-up is and how it isn’t just for new entrepreneurs.
In addition to the Lean Start-up presentation Josh also did a fantastic presentation on the Limited Red Society which focuses on using metrics and visualisation of these to behaviourally change a developer so that their tests pass sooner and more often with less compilation errors.
Other than being an early pioneer in eXtreme Programming, he is also the author of the best-selling Refactoring to Patterns book and provides Agile training from an amazing technical depth of experience.
We have a Product Mgr who’s supportive of Agile in theory, but wont do the work we need him to do. How do we manage that? eg not being available for to discuss stories (often away) & the highest priority work is the customer who screams loudest… rather than product progression, we do a lot of tweaks & minor bug fixes. Yes we do showcases, after each 2 wk sprint. Alternatively, is that a problem, or are we as a team expecting too much? (just to turn it around!) 🙂 – Phil Kan

Trying to improve quality by increasing the amount of testing is like trying to lose weight by weighing yourself more often (@rowanb) #yam
