In this Business Agility Daily episode Mathias explains why you would want to do this. He also provides some helpful pointers on how to get started.

Would love to hear what you think in the comments below!

Business Agility Daily

Spending upwards of 5h producing each high quality episode sadly turned out to be unsustainable for us and we have put this series on ice for now.
