SPaMCAST 527, is our last podcast of 2018.  We say goodbye to 2018 by talking about user story maps.  User story maps are both versatile and an underused tool. Perhaps something that we can address in 2019?

We also have a visit from Susan Parente.  Susan brings her Not a Scrumdamentalist column to the cast to discuss agile risk management.  Risk management is a requirement for any form of work. Why do some in the agile community feel it is not needed?  

Re-Read Saturday News
We are re-reading Bad Blood, Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou (published by Alfred A. Knopf, 2018 – Buy a copy and read along).  This week we move through three chapters. These three chapters continue to show the same pattern of abuse of the truth and employees that we have seen in other chapters. Arguably, conflating Theranos’s mission with a religion (chapter 14) might take the story to a new level of crazy but it is only that, a new level.
