Late last year, my guest this week, Mark Creighton, CEO of Avado, listened to a proposal from his CTO to bring the Agile practices into his management team. Although a bit sceptical, Mark accepted the challenge.

They shifted from a 90-minute weekly management team meeting to a daily stand-up, plus an end-of-week retrospective.

This tweak to their practices had a significant impact on Mark’s leadership style. It was also instrumental in their successful navigation of the COVID crisis.

In this episode, we talk:
– Agile for Management
– Leading with vulnerability
– Saving 50% of planned redundancies
– What the COVID recovery should really mean
