What I like about it

  • Gave a point of view on power uncommon and interesting
  • It is about politics which do you a lot when 'preaching' scrum
  • Content, pictures, references, humour, interactions
  • Understanding power (a bit) finally!
  • Insightful, fun, very valuable
  • It ties in with my own presentation (fearless change), but goes into another aspect of changing things
  • Alternative insight
  • Complete paranoia
  • Interesting information. Useful tips, forces a different way of thinking
  • Very fluent speaker
  • Innovative approach to agile
  • Attractive slides
  • Subject, makes me think
  • Honesty on use of power
  • Gave me a different, non-negative view of power
  • Reshuffle subject
  • The practical examples (I knew about the secredery)
  • The content: owed, who has it, how to gain, what kind of power and influence exists
  • Tips from the presenter and the audience
  • Openness on power plays

To improve

  • List all types of power at least once
  • More links to agile development in general, not just linked to coaching
  • Arrive on time
  • Make it longer, so there's more time to do exercises in practice
  • More... Time!
  • Remove list slides
  • Less theory
  • A practical or two
  • Go deeper into the subject with more samples (I.e. Make it longer)
  • Not all managers are caricatural
  • Turn up on time! Some other exercises sounded interesting, and it's a shame that we didn't get to go through them
  • Make the presentation more coherent. I did not get the shift from political economics to  types of managers
  • Make more links to agile
  • A couple of examples of 'low level' use of power e.g. with scrum teams
  • Exercise
  • Have more case studies, practical tips
  • Enough time, start on time
  • More agile edge would be great, any specific for agile would do good
  • Session came across as very generic on power plays
