Neuro-Diversity and Agile - with Dr. Sallyanne Freudenberg

Click here to go straight to the interview

A few weeks ago at InfoQ’s Qcon in London, Dr. Sallyanne Freudenberg gave a presentation on Neuro-diversity and Agile. I had the chance to interview Sal about her presentation, her experiences and her ideas on how to cope with some of the challenges knowledge workers face in work environments that strive for team-based work and high levels of collaboration. During the interview she talks about some of the techniques used by developers when working with complex problems, and how the things she learned studying autism has impacted the work that she does coaching Agile teams.

You can find the podcast interview here.

If you’d like to learn more about Sallyanne you can find here on twitter or you can check out her blog, Agile in the Wild.

And if you’d like to watch her presentation from Qcon, it is available on the InfoQ site and they’ve also posted an article that highlights some of the key takeaways from her presentation.
