Agile folk love notions borrowed from Japanese manufacturing, like Kaizen, ‘Continuous improvement’. From the perspective of teams expected to transform, continuous may also mean relentless, ceaseless, unsustainable.
Overplayed principles and constant collaboration can make it hard to find space to think and recharge. Coaches gaze deep into your souls, retros wring you for insight and apps ruthlessly interrupt your flow.
Despite best intentions, without care, new methods are just as likely, perhaps more likely, to lead to withdrawal and burnout. Taken to the extreme, the Japanese have another notion; Karōshi, overwork death.
This talk looks at what makes agile and transforming, teams susceptible to burnout. It aims to help develop a sustainable pace for both change and delivery, for yourself, and the team around you. Employing a blend of theory and practical exercises, it suggests ways to monitor and identify warning signs and decide what to do when you encounter them.
