The Tree

Essential Video’s on Agile are a collection of posts where I keep together those video’s I think every Agile leader, coach, scrum master, product owner should see and rewatch once a month. Trust me on this one… these are and probably will stay amazing:

Lead India is an Indian television initiative launched on India’s 60th Independence Day by The Times of India Group. Hosted by Anupam Kher, the program aired on STAR One every Saturday evening. Citizens of India aged between 25 and 45 could participate in the three-stage contest, for which the winner would be a contender for participating in India’s next assembly elections, a place on the leadership and politics course at Harvard University, and a grant of Rs 50 lakh for pursuing a public welfare project of the winner’s choice. Lead India was the sequel to the newspaper’s earlier “India Poised” initiative launched in January 2007. “India Poised” aimed to promote India’s recent successes and its growing international importance, and also conducted a critical assessment of sectors where India needed improvement, with public governance at the top of the latter list. Lead India therefore aimed to address that concern by offering the winner an entry to active politics without a long path up the political ladder.

This Inno-Versity Inno-Mation was adapted from Captain David Marquet’s talk on Greatness, and is based on his book, Turn the Ship Around!

(oh, and if you want to actually see the Captain himself in a similar and equally entertaining talk just click here)

Fantastic talk about the influence that culture and context has on performance, and in turn, the role of leadership to create a culture that facilitates performance.

 

Extreme reading?

ja… of eigenlijk Xtrem Reading. Gisteren en donderdag was ik bij de Agile Open Holland 2019 in Lunteren en daar heb ik aan het eind van de dag deelgenomen aan een Xtrem Reading workshop gefaciliteerd door happy facilitator Nancy Beers. Leuke sessie en interessante techniek voor het snel “lezen” van boeken, nl. twee boeken per uur. Klinkt als een handige aanpak voor een Tsundoku sensei zoals ik.

De oplettende lezer zal opgevallen zijn dat ik hierboven het woord lezen tussen quotes geplaatst heb. Met deze techniek lees je het boek niet in de traditionele die we gewend zijn maar je duikt wel in de essentie het boek en beoordeeld samen met een andere lezer of het boek de moeite van het “echt” lezen waard is.

Gaaf! Enige nadeel is dat het niet werkt met e-books. Toch maar eens kijken of er daar iets op kunnen bedenken.

Aanrader! Misschien zelf ook maar eens een sessie voor wat collega’s faciliteren.
