In this episode of the Software Process and Measurement Cast we feature our interview with Agile coach Mario Lucero. Mario and I discussed the nuts and bolts of coaching Agile teams, what is and isn’t Agile and the impact of coaching on success. Mario provided insights on Agile that span both Americas!
Mario describes himself as an Agile evangelist (including Kanban) delivering coaching for Agile transformations and Scrum mastery. He performs as a Scrum Master for several teams while mentoring and coaching other teams, Scrum Masters and product owners.
Mario is as comfortable advising senior management on the Agile transformation strategy and implementation as he is working with teams.

Re-Read Saturday News
The Re-Read Saturday focus on Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox’s The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement began on February 21nd. The Goal has been hugely influential because it introduced the Theory of Constraints, which is central to lean thinking. The book is written as a business novel. Visit the Software Process and Measurement Blog and catch up on the re-read.

DCG will also have a booth!
The next Software Process and Measurement Cast will feature our essay on the definitions of four critical words. What do the words effectiveness, efficiency, frameworks and methodologies really mean? These words get used ALL the time, however they really do have fairly specific meanings. Meanings that, once understood and used to guide how we work, can help everyone to deliver more value and make our customers more satisfied!
