Favor continuous improvement over delayed perfection
Jutta Eckstein is the guest of episode 10. She will share her thoughts on the heuristic “Favor continuous improvement over delayed perfection” front he Xebia Essentials repository (https://essentials.xebia.com/improve-continuously/).
We will discuss the trade-offs between goals set in stone and agility, and how values can help in that journey. Using reflection as a foundation to improve through experiments, where individuals, teams and organisations can generate new insights. As an example, using continuous retrospective, where the retrospective honours the context. We end up discussing the skills of the new generation of leaders and how organisations should face VUCA times.
Jutta recommends BOSSA Nova (https://www.agilebossanova.com/) as a resource for this episode.
