@ICAgile's Shane Hastie's podcast interview of me has been posted on @InfoQ - we talk about The Agility Series, Cultural Agility, the NFPPC, Value Management, Organizational Sustainability and Resilience, and whole lot more. Check it out!

Key Takeaways:

  • Value management is about doing the right thing, rather than doing lots of stuff, right
  • The reason for doing something should always trace back to an organizational strategic goal, and if it doesn’t then we’re wasting the organizations money
  • Introducing the ideas of cultural agility
  • The ability to understand multiple local contexts and work within them to obtain business results
  • A statement of strategic intent is not a statement of fact, it is a current direction which can change
  • Sustainability and resilience are enhanced through agility
  • Everything changes – the practices we are using now won’t be the ones we will use in the future, be adaptive to changing everything about how we do work
