What is new at Comparative Agility? Learn about our recent enhancements.
We are proud to present news and features we launched recently with the goal of helping you and your team perform better. Learn all about our recent enhancements that we believe you will find useful.
1. We launched four new Assessments
Motivating Language. This assessment is based on the work of Jacqueline Mayfield & Milton Mayfield at Texas A&M University and provides a framework to quickly understand all leader-to-follower work communications.
Essential Developer Capabilities was developed by a technical thought leader and the founder of Agile Institute, Rob Myers. The Core Four Agile Developer Skills provide organizations with the capacity to create, maintain, and enhance their software products without degrading quality or alienating users.
Agile Retrospective Effectiveness Scale (ARES) is a validated assessment instrument dedicated to improving how you prepare, conduct, and get value out of your retrospectives. It was authored by Retrospective experts Esther Derby, Diana Larsen, and Niki Kohari.
Comparative Team Effectiveness is based on more than 25 years of Ilker Demirel’s experience with various teams, coaching, consulting, and building high-performing working groups. The assessment provides the teams, its leaders, and other stakeholders with the insights they need to make systemic changes and increase the effectiveness in a highly cognitive knowledge-work environment.
2. The Comparative Agility Meetup group is live!
Last year we launched our interactive Meetup series where Jorgen Hesselberg, co-founder of Comparative Agility, had the honor of kicking off this exciting initiative. Over the last several months, we’ve been fortunate to have many of our amazing authors present on key aspects of their work to a growing audience across the world. Throughout the year our audience had the opportunity to learn from authors such as Dr. Pamela Meyer, Jutta Eckstein, John Buck, Richard Kasperowski, Drs. Jacqueline and Milton Mayfield, and Jenni Jepsen.
We’re thrilled about what’s ahead and can’t wait to share more exciting topics with you in the months to come. We recently hosted Johanna Rothman and Mark Kilby and on February 22 we will host Dr. Steven Wolff who is going to introduce us to a simple method for building a team’s culture.
Don’t miss out on any of our future sessions! Join our Meetup community today and ensure you’re invited to our upcoming events.
3. Personal Improvement — the „fitness app for the professional“ is available!
As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we recently launched the Personal Improvement platform. The Comparative Agility PI platform is a resource for professionals such as CSMs, CSPOs, and Agile Coaches who are dedicated in their quest for growth. Through expertly curated, role-specific surveys, professionals receive tailored recommendations, build their personal improvement backlog and have discussions with peers in a safe and confidential manner.
4. Introducing Dark Mode
Tired of looking at the same old surveys? Need a break from the norm? We’re excited to announce that all our surveys are now available as „Dark Mode“ to help break up the monotony. This is not just for fun — research shows that Dark Mode can help you rest your eyes and even extend the battery life of your device. Check it out today and let us know which mode you prefer!
5. The CA Academy is now in session!
All our paid customers get free access to the Comparative Agility Essentials Course — a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to embracing a culture of data-driven continuous improvement across the enterprise. This class marks the first of several online, interactive course offerings soon to be available in the CA Academy. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
6. Our podcast series is going strong!
Only slightly less controversial than Joe Rogan, our Podcast series was launched with the intention of providing our authors with a platform to introduce themselves to our listeners and to discuss their work and contribution to the agile community. The response from the audience has been overwhelming and we’re excited for what’s ahead in 2022!
