Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley) and Johanna Rothman (@johannarothman) got together at the Path to Agility Conference to discuss her new book – Diving for Hidden Treasures: Uncovering the Cost of Delay in Your Project Portfolio.
Then we talked about her presentation “Becoming an Agile Leader Regardless of Your Role”, what the cost of delay is and how it can help you learn about your program and portfolio, and how to beat writers block and get your words on paper.
Johanna is known as the “Pragmatic Manager who provides frank advice for difficult problems. She a prolific author and blogger. She also publishes a newsletter called The Pragmatic Manager. She provides workshops, training, and other services to organizations looking to improve the way they get work done.
And then…we called it a day.
Path is one of my favorite agile conferences each year. If you have not attended, you are missing out.
