Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (June 6 to June 13). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Antifragility and Software Development

I recently finished the book Antifragile – Things that Gain from Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. I liked it a lot, and I think the ideas in it are quite useful when examining various systems and phenomena. What especially struck me when reading it was how much of it applies to software development.

2. Agile Transformation and Executive Engagement

Most people are familiar with drawings or raffles and some of these events require that you must be present to win. A highly successful Agile Transformation happens when there is executive engagement throughout the path to agility.

3. Heisenberg Developers

You can not observe a developer without altering their behavior.

4.The Misperception of Scrum

Developers are used to thinking in an extremely abstract way. They take a complicated problem and simplify it to a point where it is simple enough to describe in a list of instructions sent to a computer processor.

5. The Ship Show: Extinguishing Burnout

As tech companies implement all sorts of ways to increase their output, the often-undiscussed tradeoff is how it impacts employees.
