Re-Read Saturday News 

Week 6 of our re-read of  Agile Conversations by Douglas Squirrel and Jeffrey Fredrick continues on Chapter 4: The Fear Conversation. We discussed two of the three major concepts in Chapter 4 last week, but we did not consider the fear conversation and more specifically the fear chart. Many years ago I worked with a manager, Rich Hisrich at BancSystems/EDS. I was the QA manager at the site. It was through my interaction with RIch that I learned the value of whiteboards and visualization. The fear chart is a visualization tool I can see having great value.

My experiment of the week:

I am going to double down and commit to creating a fear chart.  Whether an opportunity for a fear conversation presents itself, we shall see. 

Week 1: Logistics and Introduction - 

Week 2: Escaping The Software Factory - 

Week 3: Improving Your Conversations - 

Week 4: The Trust Conversation - 

Week 5 The Fear Conversation (Part 1) - 

Week 6 The Fear Conversation (Part 2) - 


Next week we continue an essay refining how we are using Flow Metrics in 2022 to … manage flow (surprise) rather than micromanaging tasks or kidding ourselves with relative sizing techniques.

We will also have a visit from Jeremy Berriault and his QA Corner.
