“Food For Thought”
Welcome to the Agile People “Food for Thought” Book Club.
In our community, one of the things we value the most is continuous learning and exploration of new and timeless ideas.
In this age of quick and easy summaries, video presentations, and podcasts, reading books is a luxury many don’t afford.
However, the great benefit of books is that we get to access and enjoy the end product of author(s) that have often spent months or years deep-diving into a topic to make it accessible, understandable, and useful for folks like us.
In the Agile People community, many of us love reading, and the great benefit of a book club is that it combines the reading of books and summarizes the key ideas, concepts, takeaways, and learnings we get from them.
In our Book Club sessions, we aim to create a space for this kind of discussion and exploration, where we can learn from each other.
This is an open event for everyone in our community, so please feel free to join us.
