At AskNicely we are in the early stages of trailing Shape Up and I have focused heavily on getting proper buy in from the various stakeholders before we kick off.
A challenge we faced was that only a few of us actually read the book, and expecting the C-Level and engineers to read it seemed a bridge too far.
Instead I created a summary of the book in PPT format and presented it, sharing more insight and the stories from the book as I presented.
Here is a link to the Shape Up Overview deck in case it’s helpful to other people too.
We are super excited about this, thanks @rjs for writing it all up so we can all benefit from your experiences.
