Bridging the gap between traditional and agile management

Chris Philipsen understands that “playbook” and “Agile” don’t necessarily go together but the title of his Agile2019 talk “A Playbook for an Agile Manager” was chosen on purpose. A consultant at Insight, Philipsen speaks the language of traditional managers who expect a “playbook” for how to effectively manage in an Agile organization as well as the language of Agile.

He and our host, Agile coach Chris Murman at Accenture | SolutionsIQ, vibe on the differences between managing styles as well as personal and interpersonal coaching techniques. Philipsen invokes the McCarthy protocol of requesting to provide feedback and radiating intention – for which he provides many examples. Ultimately, he is more productive, happier and a better agilist for radiating intent for what he hopes to accomplish in a meeting, in a day and in life.

Dirty truths of scaling

As CEO and Product Owner of, Dave West has collected some awesome stories and he regales us with a few in this episode of Agile Amped.

Too often companies attempt to scale agility without a clear purpose and fail both to see true agility and to inspire employees with a compelling purpose. And, West reminds us, “purpose is actionable,” not just something in the mission statement or plastered on the office wall.

The conversation covers frameworks, the American education system, and even conscious capitalism.

“At the heart of everything we’re doing is trying to untap the potential of humanity to deliver amazing value and solve problems – and I think that’s super exciting.”
