SPaMCAST 788 is our annual SPaMCAST panel featuring most of the podcast regulars including: 

Jeremy Berriault,

Keis Kostaqi,

Jon M. Quigley, 

Jeremy Willets, and

Tom Cagley appears in the ringmaster role. 

Tony Timbol and Susan Parente, regular contributors, were unable to join and we missed them (this time of year is busy). Maybe I should do the annual panel in February, no one is busy in the colder parts of February. 

During this year's panel, we talked about using AIs in coaching, working in the office, Jon tent, and took a look into 2024.

This is a long podcast so I will keep the chit-chat down to a dull roar. 

Learn to Solve IT's Dirtiest Secret!

Work input, which includes prioritization and sequencing, is how work gets to an organization or team. If you get it wrong you are throwing time and money away. Simply put, poor work intake means “no agile for you”. Jeremy Willets and I have written Mastering Work Intake tackling the topic that JRoss Publishing will publish in January 2024. In support of the book, we are building a live, workshop-based course for anyone deciding on what work gets completed!  This includes Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Project Managers, Program Managers, and Portfolio Managers - lots of people are involved which is part of the problem! The workshop will cover why work intake is the biggest challenge to teams and organizations today. Attendees will also learn what to do to solve this challenge. This cohort-based course will combine concise lectures, discussions, and exercises. It will provide space to learn and share with peers. We’re using a survey to build a waitlist for the first cohort – link below. We will use the list to alert you when the workshop is available. 


SPaMCAST 789 we will continue on our tour of some of the least talked about and most scary work intake problems. This is in the run-up to the release of Mastering Work Intake on January 9th. Preorder your copy now!

We will also have a visit from Mr Jon M Quigley who is bringing his Alpha and Omega of Product Development column to the podcast.
