Food for Agile Thought #156

Food for Agile Thought’s issue #156 focuses on servant leadership, why change cannot be rushed, and how one road to enterprise business agility may look like.

We also have a look at mental models for product managers/owner; we learn how free time from our schedules to run user interviews regularly, and how to avoid failure when reaching for product/market fit.

Lastly, we like to thank Bartosz for compiling a great list of resources to help us to apply servant leadership in the trenches. 🙏

Have a great week!
