Agile Coffee Podcast – episode 4

Live from Paradise Perks, Jon and Vic use the lean coffee format to discuss the following topics:

  • Agile Games and Gamification
  • Agile in Japan
    • referenced The New New Product Development Game by Takeuchi and Nonaka, 1986
  • Training, Taboos and Readiness
  • Recursion: Use it or Lose it
    • Jim McCarthy (Software for your Head, the Booted, etc.)
    • Jon brought up the movie Ed Wood starring Johnny Depp, but I thought he said “Elwood” and completely missed the reference – lol
  • Big Plan Up Front (BPUF) vs Just In Time (JIT) plans vs No plans
    • does no plan = no estimates?
