“Forecasting is about answering the right questions, to a transparent degree of certainty, with as little effort as possible.” – Troy Magennis, CEO, Focused Objective
This said, Troy has spent considerable effort making the job of forecasting easier for the rest of us! On his company’s website there are a number of free tools and spreadsheets to model scenarios ranging from classical project management to Scrum and Kanban.
In our discussion we explore the top three mistakes that people make when forecasting and what can be done to mitigate problems.
In his first book, Turn the Ship Around! David Marquet described his experiences as captain aboard the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe. When he took command, the ship was, how shall we say? “underperforming”
However, after one year, Santa Fe was recognized as the most improved ship in the fleet. In less than two years she shed her infamy as the worst boat in the navy and started winning awards as the best ship in her class.
Captain Marquet has released a new workbook to help others apply the framework he developed over those years of experimentation to their own organizations – to build highly effective communities based on personal responsibility and trust.
Leadership is not for the select few at the top. In highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level.
Daniel Vacanti, one of the instrumental founders what we know of as the Kanban Method of software development, chats with hosts Colleen Johnson and Andy Cleff about agile metrics, Little’s Law, the one metric that matters most, and the one that doesn’t matter at all. (Spoiler Alert: It’s Size)

In this week’s episode hosts Jay Hrcsko and James Gifford are joined by Johanna Rothman to discuss her newest book, Create Your Successful Agile Project! They discuss such topics as agile project managers, technical excellence, status reports, and middle managers in agile!
Lyssa Adkins joins hosts Andrew Leff, Chris Murman, and Andy Cleff for a wonderful discussion about agile and mindfulness. We explore how the combination contributes to a practice of building meaningful human relationships and liberating organizational potential.
Yep, it can be a tall order to provide service of meaning and purpose; and showing up in the here and now is integral to our success as coaches, practitioners, and partners in change (and in marriage as Lyssa shares…)
