The seventh topic of the “Coaching Agile Teams” Mini-Series on the Women in Agile Podcast brings you a content-heavy discussion with Lyssa Adkins and our host, Leslie Morse. During this episode they explore five categories of models useful when working with agile teams.
- Detecting and Seeing Problems
- Navigating Conflict
- High Performing Teams
- Team Development
- Product Management and Product Ownership
You’ll learn how models enable you to see the world differently, can serve when you are emotionally charged, and how they can be a gateway for building a team’s systems intelligence so that they are better equipped to self-organize in different ways.
