Missing Pieces: The Road from Agile Enthusiast to Agile Team Member
Agile mechanics can be installed in weeks or even days, but there is a depth to successful Agile teams that is difficult to capture.  In Missing Pieces, I discuss many of the subtle and overlooked traits, behaviors, and practices of Agile team members by describing high and low points in my Agile journey.  In returning to your budding Agile team you'll see new opportunity to leap beyond sufficient Agile to high performing Agile by recognizing moments for courage, moments for silence, moments for failure and more.
