Software Process and Measurement Cast

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 618 is a conversation about “process” that I had with two great people, Mike King and Beth Leonard, in March of 2020. Just doing the process to check the box for a rating or certification, whether the CMMI, CMMC, Scrum, or any other framework, destroys legitimacy and trust.

Non-directive coaches, akin to mentors, are not always viewed as effective by senior leaders. In reality, it is not cut and dry.

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 612 features a conversation with Woody Zuill and Allan Kelly on the topic of being an agile guide. I have felt that the term coach was overused for more than a few years. Woody and Allan put a voice to a topic that I started writing about earlier this summer describing the term 'agile guide'. Over the past 14 years, there have been a number of conversations that changed how I think and work.  This is certainly one of those gestalt moments.
