Lean UX practices face roadblocks when they don’t have buy-in from the organizations in which they work.What do these roadblocks to Lean UX look like? Structural resistance to change, fear that lean practices are a fad, and a lack of access to customers, to start. 
In this talk, Josh Seiden will share tips on how to persuade your organization to move to a leaner approach. 

 In this interview, John will ask about the science behind Cynefin, why Dave is critical of systems thinking, spiral dynamics, and Myers-Briggs. SAFe might come up in conversation. But mostly John is curious about the suggested changes to Cynefin, how official they are, and how Cynefin can be useful in practice. And John is curious if emergent / exaptive practice needs to be on a rhythm (like sprints).

An interview with Steve Tendon on Tameflow (Kanban + Theory of Constraints + Throughput Accounting) as per recently published "Tame your Work Flow: How Dr. Goldratt of “The Goal” would apply the Theory of Constraints to rethink knowledge-work management (TameFlow)". It has lots of testimonials.

LeSS is Scrum. Scrum is so open to interpretation, which can lead to inconsistent guidance from coaches, trainers, and scaling frameworks. 
LeSS Friendly Scrum Trainers like John Coleman have a LeSS lens when they coach & teach.John Coleman likes to avoid his work being unraveled. To this end, if Scrum is on the menu somewhere he works, John would prefer that people he worked with appreciated the benefits of LeSS Friendly Scrum to the extent his work does not get unraveled by other coaches/trainers.

Srikanth Ramanujam is such an active contributor on the agility chefs live stream, John thought why not bring Srikanth on the show as it seems obvious Srikanth has a lot to say. Not only that, John likes the clarity of thinking Srikanth demonstrates.

Srikanth believes in a tailored approach of principles driven change and that means helping organizations learn and understand the theory and methods that are required to build your principles and associated strategy that helps them achieve their outcomes.

John Seddon wrote many books including the latest book Beyond Command & Control available on Amazon in physical or audible formats. I suggest audible even though I read the physical book, as John Seddon himself narrates the book.
This book offers to solve the UK productivity conundrum, dramatically improve health and care services while reducing their cost and much more besides. And it is no promise or dream; it is evidenced by those who have followed John's prescription, which is to change the way they think about management

Daniel Doiron's description of "Exceptional management and management by exception. Management with TameFlow in the 20s" is as follows......Top management attention is the biggest 'invisible' constraint in today's corporate world. Human's are very bad at integrating data, are subject to group think, tricked by anchoring and are emotional by nature. Only one thing can help: metrics and science. 
 How can we apply this to management? And specifically to knowledge work where there are no answers to speak of in the agile world. No one has the answers. That is unless you attend this meetup!

Agile/Lean/Kanban and the likes have yet to embrace Explicit Risk Management. 
Why? Probably because it requires a plan in order to track variations form the plan. 
 When your precepts 1) Agile - No upfront planning 2) Lean - Planning is waste and 3) Kanban - We are all for it but have no solutions. Tameflow has the solution. Since 2011, when traditional Kanban let go of the Theory of Constraints from Dr Goldratt, TameFlow took the fork in the road and embraced TOC, Throughput Accounting, Pattern Theory, IFM (Incremental Funding method) and much more.

Andy Hiles, John Coleman, and Daniel Vacanti chat about Kanban Guide and

Looks remarkably like Scrum but it isn't, not a Scrum Master or Product Owner to be seen ... and avoids the five dysfunctions of a team (Lencioni) but it has no values or principles, it must be totally corrupt :)

When will it be done? 
 It's the question we get asked the most. Let's see if there is another way.

John Coleman & Friends play with a Lean UX canvas discussing problems in society

Good Flow Efficiency is the first step to getting lasting improvements. Yet, no one gets it done right. This is surprising given that it is at the core of Kanban and Lean and that it is made of two basic and easy to understand components : Wait time and Touch time! This meetup will reveal the thought leadership of the TameFlow approach from Steve Tendon and will be quite an eye-opener on how to build a Flow Efficiency Kanban board.

Ask John Coleman (agility chef, PKT, PST, LSFT) anything about Scrum

On the website "Nexus builds upon Scrum’s foundation, and its parts will be familiar to those who have used Scrum. It minimally extends the Scrum framework only where absolutely necessary to enable multiple teams to work from a single Product Backlog to build an Integrated Increment that meets a goal.
Ask John about Kanban. John Coleman is co-author of Kanban Guide. He is also the author of Kanplexity™, with heavy attribution to the creator of Cynefin.
Taking a similar approach to digital HR transformation Carolyn believes there is, now more than ever, a compelling reason to inspire staff to leverage technology while they themselves add more value than machines, even in light of the rapid pace of change. John Hagel’s Scalable Learning model has captivated Carolyn for a while and informs her forward direction in terms of addressing many organisational constraints such as Employee Engagement and Wellbeing. 

Daniel Doiron's introduces us to Throughput Accounting, helping organizations to be profitable now and in the future using cash as the measurement over accounting tricks.
