Part Two: The Seductive Seven

Link visible for attendees

Utah Agile is proud to present part two of The Seductive Seven.

In January, Kristen Cox introduced us to The Seductive Seven and is now returning to teach us how to implement the model in your organization.

If you missed part 1, the recording is on our website: Kristen Cox: The Seductive Seven

Stop Decorating the Fish highlights common and ineffective tactics organizations often use when responding to problems. We refer to these actions as the Seductive 7. We deliberately chose the word seductive. The things that often seduce us away from focusing on the core problem are shiny, alluring, and ubiquitous. They often promise an easy fix or immediate gratification while the real problem isn’t quite as obvious.
