098: Agile for everyone with Judith Mills
Download my one-page summary of the episode instead of making your own notes.
Agile can be hugely effective in many environments, but from the outside, it can be daunting. The language, its origins in tech, and its overzealous cheerleaders can make it seem inaccessible and only applicable in specific situations.
If that sounds like a familiar pain, Judith Mills is just the medicine you need!
Not only is Judith an expert in applying Agile in everywhere from software to gardening, but she explains it all with easy-going charm, clarity, and simplicity.
You can hear it for yourself in this episode, in which Judith decodes and demystifies Agile – bringing it back to its roots and explaining it as a mindset, not a process.
If you’ve ever had an interest in Agile, you should consider this essential listening!
