 - Ever Finished?
8:50After hearing the word “finished” more and more over the last few weeks, I started to notice that it was bothering me. I wanted to explore why that was after looking over some notes and asking a better question. In product thinking terms, are we ever finished with something? Would it be such a bad thing if we never were finished? Experimented with a quick and simple way to think through that in this episode.

18:17There seems to be something magical about the number 3. It appears to show up in many different places and in lots of useful ways.

 - Incentives
22:33Exploring an idea around the 3rd root cause of failures I've seen in working in a more agile way, incentives. Many times, if the behavior and reasons don't make sense to you, take a look at how the person is being rewarded, or the lack of rewards, and see if you can understand it better. This can also be the secret key to changing how people work, change their incentives. If you have seen examples of this working against you, or altering them to work for you send it in!
