When thinking about how to change an organization, it is easy to limit your thinking based on where the organization currently is and its existing processes and policies.  To break down barriers to change and dream up the impossible, sometimes you must start with nothing--a clean slate, a blank piece of paper.  Seth Godin's blog reminds us how to get beyond stuck.

I help people discover their agile instincts and develop their coaching abilities. As an agile coach with Improving in Dallas, I enjoy mentoring others to become great Scrum Masters, coaching managers to grow teams that deliver amazing results, and fostering communities that provide sustainability for agile transformations. In my experience, applying agile methods improves delivery, strengthens relationships, and builds trust between business and IT. A big believer in the power of community-based learning, I grew the DFW Scrum user group significantly over the five years I served as an organizer. I am also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, a foodie, and proud glasses wearer.
