When I was in the beginnings of my career in Project Management and started volunteering for PMI, Bob Tarne was my mentor. Bob taught me volumes about not just project management, but how to be on the Board of the IT & Telecommunications SIG.
This summer at Agile 2018, Bob led a session called "Agile Road Trip: Lessons from a Coach at Toyota" (http://sched.co/EUEg). Bob's presentation focused on some of his recent work as an Agile coach working at Toyota. (If you didn't just do a spit take, yes... Toyota... the place that spawned Lean Manufacturing... which is what most of Agile is rooted in.)
This interview was streamed live on Facebook during the conference. During the conversation Bob and walk through his experience of helping Toyota retune how it is implementing Agile. We also discuss what value having a PMP Certification can be to someone whose work is primarily focused in agile.
In this podcast interview which was recorded live at Agile 2018, Johanna Rothman and Mark Kilby offer some tips on how to improve communication in distributed teams.
Many of the tips were discovered while writing their new book "From Chaos to Successful Distributed Agile Teams" which they've co-written AS A DISTRIBUTED TEAM.
