Most of what we do is consulting - helping teams and their managers and executives transform chaos to clarity and make product development "hum." As part of our consulting practices, Ron teaches teams to be agile, and we both teach managers to manage software people and teams.
Much of the rest of what we do is writing - from our book (Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams, now in its second printing), to the annual Study of Product Team Performance that Ron also coauthors, to blogging and articles.
When our publisher, Addison Wesley, was solicited for management video training by O'Reilly's Safari library, we entirely re-thought and re-worked our book for video delivery, then spent a week in Pearson’s recording studio, followed by round after round of video editing, to emerge with ten hours, ten topics, 84 learning lessons to our LiveLessons: Managing Software People and Teams,
We also regularly present talks and one-, two-, and three-day workshops around the world, some of which are public. This page leads off with those that are upcoming. Some of the talks - and some of the interviews we've done - have been captured on video or audio. So if watching or listening is a medium you enjoy, check out the video and audio recordings of interviews we've done and the videos of talks we've given. We sometimes repeat talks, so you may find several video versions of some talks to choose from. We've also put links to most of the slidesets themselves.
