Food for Agile Thought #210
Food for Agile Thought’s issue #210 analyzes why customer journey teams may be superior to cross-functional teams; we enjoy a list of anti -agile personality types, and we listen to Mr. DevOps on how to build high-performance organizations.
We also help product managers to understand user research better; we delve into the most annoying collaboration mistakes of product teams, and we grasp the prerequisites of product-market fit.
Lastly, we thank Andy Cleff for compiling a list of approaches to measure team health and morale.
