The Podcast this week features my interview with Unmesh Srivastava. We talked about organizational culture and disrupting health care through development that is customer-focused. We also spent time discussing the need for empathy in order to find critical business needs. Unmesh points out that many times technologists think with their technology before they think with their hearts. 

Unmesh is the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at P3 Health Partners. Over the years, Unmesh and his teams have helped US healthcare with opportunities to drive innovation and disruptive transformation using digital enablement. He has worked with multiple innovative organizations building and deploying the next generation of healthcare. All the digital enablement projects have been geared towards driving a differentiated provider and patient experience while reducing the cost of care and improving quality of care. The technology products delivered by Unmesh and his teams range from clinical decision support technology for providers, data and artificial intelligence-enabled seamless care experience for patients, and multiple other innovations to drive down the administrative burden on the providers and health systems.

This week it is time for Chapter 5 of Great Big Agile, An OS for Agile Leaders by Jeff Dalton. This week we visit the Performance Circle, Crafting. I often state, somewhat tongue and cheek, that this part of agile is where all the stuff that’s required to actually create and deliver quality products and services occurs.  If I wanted to be even blunter, I might state that this is where the magic happens – where words become something tangible.

Remember, buy a copy and read along.
