A short video conversation I had with Mervin Chiang from Procensol for his “In Conversations” series.
Agile master Craig Smith in conversation with Mervin Chiang on all things “Agile in Business”. Craig, Director of the Agile Alliance and Unbound DNA is one of Australia’s premier Agile trainers, coaches and practitioners and a significant contributor to the Agile community.

My presentation from the LAST Conference 2017 in Brisbane called “Mind the Gap: Realising the Value of Agility” is available on Slideshare.
Agile has well and truly crossed the chasm and every organisation large or small seems to be in the middle of some sort of Agile transformation. Yet, look behind the covers and we have to ask ourselves the tough question of how well we are doing and how agile are we really?
So all aboard as we acknowledge some of gaps many organisations are facing and we question the true value we are delivering. More importantly, we will discuss how we might start to these issues, both inside our organisations and as individuals flying the agile flag.
My presentation from YOW! Hong Kong 2017 and YOW! Singapore 2017 called “Agile Coaching Nightmares: Lessons We Can Learn From Gordon Ramsay” is available on Slideshare.
When you look for inspiration in the Agile Coaching community, the name Gordon Ramsay is probably not the first name to come to mind. He has been known to be belligerent, condescending and downright rude, but underneath this brute facade is a treasure trove of skills and talents that influence change.
In this presentation we will draw insights from his ‘Kitchen Nightmare’ escapades and draw parallels with how much his work aligns with that of an Agile Coach and the goal to successfully drive change and introduce a number of models and techniques that are indispensable in the coaching toolkit.
Here are some tweets and feedback from the talk:
