This week, in Episode 7 of Troubleshooting Agile, we discuss Agile Principle Number 5: "Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done." Talking points this week include: -Why perceptions of this principle differ immensely depending on whether your adopt Theory X or Theory Y. -Directed Opportunism - and who used it better, General Clausewitz in 1870 or Darth Sidious a long, long time ago. -How trusting your team and recognising the ingenuity inherent within all employees creates psychological safety that motivates your staff and advances your business. -Different ways to deal with an unyielding Theory X-er. -How to recognise when it's come down to a case of "change your organisation or change your organisation." And finally, can you can think of a good Theory Y boss/environment depicted in TV or Film? (think corporate Mr Miyagi) Let us know down below, or Tweet us @TShootingAgile and we'll give your ideas a shout out in an upcoming episode. *** LINKS: -The 12 Agile Principles: http://agilemanifesto.org/principles.html -Stephen Bungay's 'The Art of Action': https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01HPVHLHG/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 -The LEAP Institute: http://dramador.com/the-leap-institute/ -Niels Pfläging's blog, 'Why we cannot learn a damn thing from Semco, or Toyota': https://vision.haufe.de/blog/en/why-we-cannot-learn-a-damn-thing-from-semco-or-toyota/ *** We'd love to hear any thoughts, ideas or feedback you have regarding the episode.
