How do we create time for focused teams? In this deck I talk about my experiences with Agile, Lean Product Development, Remote, and 6-week cycles. In my opinion, companies put far too much focus on money and not enough on how they use time. We’ve inherited a 100 year old model of ‘Productivity’ from industrialists. What’s more, we’ve now accelerated it with technology - and it’s not doing us or our work any good.
I make recommendations based on the work of Jack Knapp, John Zeratsky, Douglas Rushkoff, and the Basecamp founders David Heinemeier Hansson & Jason Fried.
