To all our customers,

We hope you are safe and healthy.

It’s so hard to image how you may have been impacted by COVID and the economy.

We’re now 6 weeks into exclusively working from home.

It hasn’t been easy. We just held our first retrospective since this all happened and we agreed to:

- keep focus on our company values

- get out for a walk each day

- more regular 1:1 time with random team members

- prioritize looking after ourselves

It’s now more important than ever to communicate effectively and share what we’re learning.

In this update we’ll share some of the best things we’ve written, read, watched and discussed this month.

The team at NextEra Energy sent us a lovely testimonial:

“We’re working to mature our SAFe agile practices and foster a DevOps environment and Easy Agile Programs seems to be ticking all the right boxes. It has the features we’re looking for.

Programs is really helping us put this information together in a way that is understandable and actionable.”
