In this 2021 conversation, Marjorie Anderson joins our host Leslie Morse to explore how community building serves our teams and organizations. The episode is aptly named after a quote Marjorie drops early in the episode, “Agile is Community, Community is Agile.” As you listen you’ll realize how true this is. During the discussion they touch on the multi-facted nature of nurturing communities and all the ways it has a possibility of serving the work agilists do.
