COHAA Evening Meeting: Of Blockers and Friction

Effective Agile promises hyper-productive teams with off-the-charts velocity which we’ve learned is difficult to achieve.  To reach this peak  team velocity, oftentimes we focus on the (excellent practice of)  identification and removal of blockers.  But there’s something else brewing that can be even more corrosive to team productivity than blockers–-friction.

In this high-energy discussion, Justin Browder will help us understand the idea of friction, give us the tools to  identify it in our everyday work (and perhaps personal) life, and lay out strategies to "sand it down" in order to reach our ultimate goal--hyper-productivity.


Justin Browder is a Senior Consultant at AXIA Consulting, with a focus on developing the firm’s Agile practice.  He is currently partnering with the Gap’s Digital Strategy division to deliver complex e-commerce and supply-chain projects while filling and coaching various roles, such as Project Manager, Scrum Master, and Product Owner.  Justin also serves as the VP of Marketing for the Central Ohio Agile Association.  He deeply believes successful Agile practices orbit the theory that great teams lead to great results.  In his free time, Justin works with multiple Ohio State mentoring organizations and enjoys playing music, traveling, and the study of behavioral finance.
