    AgilePDX User Group - Portland Metro - Agile Practitioners Book Club: Simon Sinek's Start with Why

    Please RSVP on our Meetup page to reserve your spot: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/262070829/
    If you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP to open your seat for another attendee.

    Join us for a beer (or beverage of your choice) and a snack at the Rogue Eastside Pub to discuss Start with Why by Simon Sinek. (Our poll tied twice, and this is part two!)

    Here's the book in a nutshell, according to the handy Amazon description: "In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time.

    Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?

    People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.

    START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY."

    Let's ponder and talk about how asking WHY will help us or hinder us on our agile journeys.

    AgilePDX User Group - Portland Metro - Agile Practitioners Book Club: The Age of Agile by Denning

    Please RSVP on our Meetup page to reserve your spot: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/259745618/
    If you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP to open your seat for another attendee.

    Join us for a beer (or beverage of your choice) and a snack at the Rogue Eastside Pub to discuss The Age of Agile by Stephen Denning. (Our poll tied twice, so I flipped the coin, as promised. If you want to read Start with Why by Sinek, we'll do that next time!)

    Here's the book in a nutshell from the book flap: "The Age of Agile unpacks the groundbreaking ideas and practices that are remaking the very foundations of business. Reporting from the front lines, Denning takes you deep into the Agile management revolution. Denning demystifies Agile by providing three “laws” that make it practical and clear:

    • The Law of the Small Team shows how to operate in a “VUCA” world (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity). Using this law, difficult problems are split into manageable batches and performed by small cross-functional, self-governing teams, working iteratively in short cycles, with fast feedback from customers and end-users.

    • The Law of the Customer flows from the epic shift in power in the marketplace from seller to buyer, and the need for firms to radically accelerate their ability to make decisions and change direction in light of unexpected events and new customer demands. It amounts to a Copernican revolution in management.

    • The Law of the Network (the linchpin of Agile) illustrates what’s involved in making the entire organization Agile."

    Let's ponder and talk about how his "Laws" help us or hinder us on our agile journeys.
