In the podcast this week, we discuss the Agile Coaching Code of Ethics and the process of building an ethical foundation.  Shane Hastie and Craig Smith have been leading the effort to craft a useful Agile Coaching Code of Ethics for the past year. These two thought leaders have helped to pull together a diverse group of coaches, and then guide that herd of cats in order to create a new force to guide agile coaches of all stripes. 

In May 2017 Shane Hastie joined ICAgile as the Director of Agile Learning Programs, tasked with ensuring the learning objectives remain valid and useful, supporting the various communities that make up the ICAgile ecosystem, and seeking ways to advance the state of agile learning.

In November 2019 he moved into the Director of Community Development role, building and supporting the global community of thought leaders, members, instructors, and certification holders.

Re-Read Saturday News 

This week we read Chapter 4 of  Fixing Your Scrum, Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems, by Ryan Ripley and Todd Miller. I have argued that the role of the Product Owner is the hardest in Scrum. The role is difficult for many reasons, Todd and Ryan tackle seven of the most pernicious antipatterns of product ownership in Chapter 4, The Product Owner, of Fixing Your Scrum. Compromising Scrum by accepting any of these antipatterns will need other compromises which will increase the overhead needed to deliver value. That, in turn, will hurt the business.
