Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 178!

The SPaMCAST 178 features my interview with Al Pittampalli.  We discussed his book, Read This Before Our Next Meeting, the modern meeting standard and how most meetings are in need of a makeover or avoiding.

Al Pittampalli is the author of Read This Before Our Next Meeting, the most popular Kindle book in the world during the week of its release. It was recently selected by renowned business book expert, Todd Sattersten as the #4 best business book of 2011 by and by the IBM Competitive Edge Book Club as their Q1 2012 read. Al has been featured in various major media and popular publications such as Forbes, Huffington Post, CBS, and American Express Open Forum. He helps Fortune 500 companies provoke change in the status quo. You can learn more about Al at:
