Re-Read Saturday News
This week we continue our re-read of The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. Chapter Three of Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point is a reminder of why this book continues to be important and useful. The density of ideas in this chapter is amazing. Stop borrowing your best friends copy and buy a copy of the book for yourself!
SPaMCAST 535 will feature an essay spawned when I was asked to help a Scrum Master who said: “I messed up a scrum team should I do kanban?” There is not a straightforward answer because regardless of the path forward there are people issues that need to be dealt with first.
We will also have a visit from Susan Parente who brings her ‘I am not a Scrumdamentalist’ column to the cast!
