Food for Agile Thought #120

Food for Agile Thought’s issue #120 focuses on agile trends as we have a look at the latest edition of ThoughtWork’s Tech Radar as well as at the domains of business agility in the 21. Century.

We also point at suitable agile metrics beyond velocity and at moments that reveal you’re a lucky member of a high-performing team.

Lastly, we learn how to apply product management principles to internal products, and how to make the best out of customer feedback.

Have a great week!
