“A provocative, exciting, and important rallying cry to reassert our human spirit of community and teamwork.”—Walter Isaacson Team Human is a manifesto—a fiery distillation of preeminent digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff’s most urgent thoughts on civilization and human nature. In one hundred lean and incisive statements, he argues that we are essentially social creatures, and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together—not as individuals. Yet today society is threatened by a vast antihuman infrastructure that undermines our ability to connect. Money, once a means of exchange, is now a means of exploitation; education, conceived as way to elevate the working class, has become another assembly line; and the internet has only further divided us into increasingly atomized and radicalized groups. Team Human delivers a call to arms. If we are to resist and survive these destructive forces, we must recognize that being human is a team sport. In Rushkoff’s own words: “Being social may be the whole point.” Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Rushkoff shows that when we work together we realize greater happiness, productivity, and peace. If we can find the others who understand this fundamental truth and reassert our humanity—together—we can make the world a better place to be human.

The Human Side of Agile

The Human Side of Agile

Does your Agile team experience little buy-in, collaboration, empowerment, or improvement? Use this book to cultivate an engaged team that can handle almost anything.

As an Agile team leader, your biggest challenge is also your biggest asset. The human side of Agile is tricky. It's the least manageable, understood, and appreciated asset in an Agile environment. Even if your customers are reasonably happy and your developers seem to be doing okay, you know your team is capable of more: delivering great products and staying ahead of ever-changing demands. You need a team that's self-organized, energetic, and flexible, even in tough situations. But how do you build it and lead it? Whether you're a ScrumMaster, project manager, functional manager, or team leader, you want to feel good about using Agile and to create the conditions for great results. But the project management skills you honed in traditional environments don't always apply to the role of Agile team leader. The Human Side of Agile fills this gap, guiding you to: Establish yourself as a confident and capable leader who adds value Build and lead an engaged team that can handle almost any challenge Cultivate collaboration and a continuous improvement mind-set Reap the full benefits of Agile in the real world with real people "I just found the next must-read book for our entire leadership team." "Tricia Broderick, Director of Development, TechSmith" "This book is up there with Peopleware, with concrete examples you can use immediately." "Dave Rooney, Sherpa, Shopify" "Agile teams need effective leaders who 'get' the people stuff. Without that you're merely going through the Agile motions." "Scott W. Ambler, co-creator of Disciplined Agile Delivery" While readable from cover to cover, the book is written as practical answers to the 80+ most relevant and pressing questions that team leaders ask, such as: "How Can I Help the Team Buy In?" "What If I Can't Work Full-Time as the Team's Leader?" "What Actions Will Build the Team's Trust in Me?" "How Can I Mitigate the Damage of Performance Reviews?" "What If a Member Doesn't Fit With the Team?" "How Can We Focus on Our Work With So Many Meetings?" "How Do I Get Stakeholders and Managers on My Side?" "How Can I Make Changes Stick?" "How Do We Avoid Reverting to Old Behaviors?" (Click on Look Inside to browse the complete table of contents.) The book's forewords are by Jim Highsmith and Christopher Avery. Gil Broza, founder and chief specialist at 3P Vantage, has successfully mentored Agile leaders and their teams since 2004. Gil's guidance helps professionals adopt effective, humane, and responsible approaches to software development.
