The Delivery Manager Daily
What I do when I deliver
Season 2, Ep. 24
in this episode I'll be talking about what I do again & again when I deliver projects. These are things I've weaponised which get me results and I want to start drilling down into them a bit more.
Ep 30 - Being happy at work
Season 1, Ep. 30
Have you ever asked yourself the question why you go to work? Like, sat down & just asked yourself what the *** you are doing? I have. I wanted to briefly talk about the journey I’ve been on over the last six months where I’ve very much nearly become part of the great resignation & what I learnt whilst going on that journey. Maybe some of this will resonate with you. If you’ve found yourself in a slump or thinking **** it, or even thinking you’re going to try & leverage the post COVID human-labour-market going ****** crazy, then this podcast is for you.

Ep 29 - Retrospectin the Retrospective
Season 1, Ep. 29
Retrospectives -That one Agile event that’s meant to fix everything. Often however they are run by a tired scrum master or team lead at the end of an arduous sprint & more often than not, it’s a box ticking exercise. It’s meant to be an inspect & adapt event, but its more often a bun fight.Teams & individuals jockey for position at the moaning table, often the loudest person in the room pontificates over what’s wrong in a statesmen like monologue whilst everyone rolls’ their eyes. Others state the obvious. Many point fingers & those responsible often have shoulders covered in Teflon. We’ve all been there.In this episode I talk about making a retrospective fun, engaging, well facilitated & why you should think about more than just the sprint velocity!

Becoming a Delivery Manager
Season 1, Ep. 28
If you're in a neighbouring discipline such as Business Analysis, you'll probably thought about becoming a DM to take your role to the next level. Maybe you're interviewing to be a DM or maybe you dont even know what a DM is. In this episode I talk about a few of these things, how to get into the space, what I see in interviews & what you can to do increase your chances of successful applications, but also the types of skills you'll need.
