Hear the entire podcast here. You can even comment there, although I don’t know if I will be notified of your comments.

I didn’t know that Matthias was a lean coach when I started speaking with him. Listen for the bonding moment when we learned we had both seen lean teams understand their WIP limits. I can’t wait to meet Matthias in person. I’m really looking forward to OOP.
