Good talks/podcasts (Jun 2023 I)


These are the best podcasts/talks I've seen/listened to recently:
  • Sabotaging a Transformation (Fred George) [Agile, Culture, Inspirational, Transformation] [Duration: 0:42:00] Real experiences on Agile transformations: common obstacles and strategies to overcome them. Specifically, it addresses: executive unawareness, lack of engagement, power shifts, and blame-oriented cultures.
  • Software delivery in small batches: Dr. Deming (Adam Hawkins) [Devops, Lean, Lean Software Development] [Duration: 0:14:00] (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) This episode highlights the significant impact of Dr. W. Edwards Deming on lean manufacturing, Total Quality Control (TQC), and the subsequent development of DevOps in software delivery. Deming's focus on holistic thinking, continuous improvement, and understanding the system laid the groundwork for lean principles, which later influenced the emergence of DevOps, revolutionizing software development and operations.
  • Improving Software Flow (Randy Shoup) [Devops, Flow, Inspirational, Lean, Lean Software Development, Technical leadership, leadership] [Duration: 0:50:00] (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) In this session, Randy explains how they improve the overall flow and the engineering capacity following the ideas in the Unicorn Project (Locality and Simplicity, Focus, Flow, and Joy, Improvement of Daily Work, Psychological Safety, and Customer Focus). It is an excellent talk about generating/improving an engineering culture following lean principles.
