Whiplash Agile Podcast

At Agile by Design, we believe that sometimes you need to move backward to go forward and that there are always valuable lessons to be learned from someone’s else’s trials and tribulations. On Whiplash Agile, you’ll hear compelling stories told by people who have deep in the trenches experience with agile transformations.

A big focus of our podcast is about people’s struggles, and the very real stumbles that happen as they move through their agile journey, before ultimately gaining a measure of success.  My guests embody the change that they want their organizations to achieve, only because they learned the hard way how to radically transform how their companies think, communicate and collaborate.
