SPaMCAST 306 - Luis Gonçalves, No More Performance Appraisals

Software Process and Measurement Cast number 306 features our interview with Luis Gonçalves.  We discussed getting rid of performance appraisals.  Luis makes the case that performance appraisals hurt people and companies. 

Luis’s Bio . . .

Luis Gonçalves is an Agile coach, author, speaker and blogger.

Luis has been working in the software industry since 2003, as an Agile practitioner since 2007. He has experience in integrating sequential project phases like localization into an Agile framework and pioneering Agile adoption at different companies and in different contexts.

Luis is the co-author of the book, Getting Value Out of Agile Retrospectives

He has a technical background and is Management 3.0 passionate. 

Mr Gonçalves likes to write and share ideas with the world and is a passionate blogger. Inspiration comes from his professional life and from the books he reads. Follow his blog at  http://lmsgoncalves.com/

Software Process and Measurement Cast number 307 features our essay on Agile integration testing.  Integration testing is defined as testing in which components (software and hardware) are combined to confirm that they interact according to expectations and requirements.  Good integration testing is critical to effective Agile development. 

Upcoming Events

DCG Webinars:

Raise Your Game: Agile Retrospectives September 18, 2014 11:30 EDT
Retrospectives are a tool that the team uses to identify what they can do better. The basic process – making people feel safe and then generating ideas and solutions so that the team can decide on what they think will make the most significant improvement – puts the team in charge of how they work. When teams are responsible for their own work, they will be more committed to delivering what they promise.
Agile Risk Management – It Is Still Important! October 24, 2014 11:230 EDT
Has the adoption of Agile techniques magically erased risk from software projects? Or, have we just changed how we recognize and manage risk?  Or, more frighteningly, by changing the project environment through adopting Agile techniques, have we tricked ourselves into thinking that risk has been abolished?
