A Call To Action
I still need a few more leaders of Agile PMOs for a special podcast and for background interviews. Please contact me to discuss the topic at email@example.com if you are interested in telling me your story!
SPaMCAST 475 features the majority of the SPaMCAST Crew in a round-robin discussion. Six people with strong opinions, three tough topics and lots of note-taking This is one of my favorite moments of the podcast year. Topics included the extensibility of Agile to other parts of the business, why do software development leaders spend so much time telling developers how to do their job and what is keeping us from consistently delivering quality. Pretty amazing!
