We are back from backpacking on Isle Royale. Simply awesome.  Today, we feature a discussion with Tom Henricksen.  You know Tom from the Agile Online Summit and the Dev Ops Online Summit however Tom is more than just the Summits. Today we discuss learning and then get into whether hybrid working scenarios are all they are cracked up to be. I am not sure we agreed.


Picking the next Re-read Saturday Book.  Steve Adams once told me that he was much more engaged in the re-read when he had a say in which book was chosen. That was true even if his favorite wasn’t chosen — many of us are coaches and consultants, Steve’s advice rings true, therefore I need your input!

 Note there are two books in the list I have not read yet that I am going to read and have been highly recommended. Therefore I would be happy to read them with you rather than re-read them with you. I will close the poll when I leave radio silence on August 28th’ish. 

Upcoming Events

The Agile Online Summit! 

In my opinion, this is the premier Agile Online Conference.  October 25th to 27th, 2021, featuring live and recorded segments 

Join Tom and crew for the fifth annual event, The Agile Online Summit was virtual before virtual became a thing — they really know how to do this right. Tom indicates that since this is a milestone anniversary, he has some exciting twists and turns.  The Summit has free options and paid add-ons so you can tailor your experience to your schedule and need.
