Everyone who knows me knows that I like to read a lot of stuff. And I like to share the articles and books that have made a positive impact in my world.
At the end of my both my Agile 2015 Keynote and my Agile Australia 2016 keynote I challenged attendees to play two games to change the world. While this sounds great, some of the attendees pointed out that they felt a bit lost: they didn’t know which games they could play to change the world, let alone which games they could play to address problems they’re facing at work.
Dear Agile 2016 Attendees -
I was talking with Tarang Patel, one of our Certified Collaboration Instructors (CCIs), about various frameworks that we use for helping teams adopt more Agile practices or in Agile classes and thought the broader community might enjoy the fruits of our conversations. We'll cover:
It pains me when billionaires who are trying to make America better face the same challenges as ordinary citizens creating high-impact results that improve outcomes, especially when Conteneo and our community of Certified Collaboration Architects have developed solutions to these challenges through Deliberative Decision Making, Participatory Budgeting and other forms of scalable civic engagement.
Mayor Sam Liccardo and the San José City Council, in partnership with the Every Voice Engaged Foundation and Conteneo Inc., invite San José residents to participate online in a citywide participatory budgeting event during the week of February 22, 2016.
The hour-long online “zero-based” budgeting sessions will provide residents with an opportunity to get involved in their government and community and impact the city budget.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- January 19, 2016. Today, Conteneo Inc. announced that Mark Finnern, founder of Playful Enterprises and former Chief Community Evangelist of the SAP Community Network, has joined Conteneo’s advisory board.
“We are thrilled to have a leader of Mark’s caliber join our advisory board,” said Conteneo CEO & Founder Luke Hohmann. “Our mission is to enable an organization’s employees, stakeholders and customers to effectively and easily collaborate and speed decision-making, whether they are in the same room or across time zones. Mark’s experience in building and nurturing collaborative community networks will be invaluable as we launch the newest evolution of our visual collaboration platform Idea Engine 2.0 to bring the power of multidimensional collaboration to organizations around the world.”
Charlie Rudd, CEO of SolutionsIQ, a Conteneo customer and partner, just published The Third Wave of Agile, a very insightful post that compactly describes how Agile has progressed from single teams, to multiple teams (Agile at Scale), to the entire enterprise (Business Agility). As a leader in the Agile movement since 2003, I find myself agreeing with his insights. More importantly, I also believe that his graph on industry maturity applies to the changes a single organization realizes as they pursue business agility: they start with teams, move to scale and then focus on the enterprise.
