Can’t get enough of this fantastic talk: “Why Agile Fails in Large Enterprises” by Mike Cottmeyer

“Why? Real concrete discussion on how to get the benefits of agile in a large complex organization. Pragmatic. Handson.”

Beata Padlo

Is discovering  the science behind the perfect timing techniques while reading Daniel H. Pink “When”

“This book totally changed my life in a way I look at time!
Did you know that by adjusting activities in your team to match different type of  personalities you can help your team grow and create inclusive culture. The one that doesn’t judge whether you are an early bird, middle bird or an owl you can create environment for everyone to thrive in.”

Catrine BjörkegrenCatrine Björkegren

Is aiming to get healthier with Lina Aurell, Mia Clase and their “Food Pharmacy”

“I find it interesting because I get to learn so much about the body, what fuel it needs and why. And at the same time it’s hands on things I can easily change in my life to feel better.” (more…)

When you are working with such a heartwarming idea as electric cars, you almost don’t need a pitch to be interested in joining it, that at least it goes for me. Deep inside of you, you feel like you are contributing to the greater global purpose. One that generations to come will simply enjoy like we do now with smartphones.

As you can read in the “Roadmap for a fossil fuel-free Stockholm 2050”:

“The City of Stockholm has declared its ambition
to be fossil fuel-free by the year 2050.”*

It feels both inspiring and exciting, knowing that you are seeing the history in the making, one that will inspire other cities worldwide and will make a global difference.

By sharing this story, story about a small scrum team, I’m aiming to inspire those who feel demotivated and lose hope and think their organisations will never join the agile revolution. This team who works in a large organisation, was put together in the same time as both department and the business were going through a reorganisation. The drive, commitment and trust that they put in each others skills helped them to reach their goals and shortly after that build up on their first success. Being cross-functional, with: UX, UI, testing, development, content management and marketing expertise, helped them to define clear path together.  The science behind this success is something I’m happy to share with you today.

Many of our decisions, conclusions and actions in a team come about after a good meeting. But what is a ‘good meeting’? How do we make them productive, informative and how do we engage all invited in order to close it with the expected results.

How do you engage people in effective collaboration? Should you entertain them? When you walk in loaded with your beautiful agenda, prepared meticulously ahead of the meeting, to find yourself demotivated by yawns of few attendees. And you, dear meeting goer, ever find yourself spending meetings daydreaming? Not feeling like your voice is heard? Already planning not to show up on the follow up meeting? Daydreaming? Sleeping?
