After Action Report: An eager group of well over 50 people descended upon APL’s Parsons Auditorium on April 17th for one of the more anticipated Chesapeake Chapter lectures in recent memory, and Dr. Suzette Johnson did not disappoint. A Certified Scrum Coach for Northrop Grumman, Dr. Johnson engaged listeners with a discussion of keys to successful implementation of agile development processes in her talk entitled “Radical Leadership: Practices for Building Innovative and Adaptive Environments.” Dr. Johnson’s “10 Principles for Building Innovative and Adaptive Environments” were the core of the presentation, and she fielded questions from the audience throughout her description of the principles.

One of the talking points that evoked much discussion was Interactive Communication and Collaboration. Dr. Johnson stressed how an environment that consistently places employees in a position to present to their peers can be highly productive. She also emphasized the need to create a culture of transparency. Another topic of discussion was the use of games to illustrate the concepts of agile development, which sparked a dialogue with the audience. Dr. Johnson hinted at the presence of games in her upcoming workshop on May 4th, the Chesapeake Chapter’s next event.
