Fifty is the new Thirty! Or should all episodes strive to be as great as Fifty? Either way, it's a CELEBRATION!

Vic (@AgileCoffee) is joined by Brett Palmer (@brett_palmer), Larry Lawhead (@LarryLawhead) and first-time guest L. Mark Higgins (@LMHiggins1).

Today our heroes discuss the following topics:

* Who sets the agenda for the retrospective?
* Middle Managers and the Agile Transformation

* check out Em Campbell-Pretty's "Thawing the Frozen Middle"

* The Agile project manager
* Scrum patterns and community at scrumplop.org
* Brett breaks down some distinctions between SAFe and LESS

* Craig Larmen is coming back to SoCal: Sept. 12-14 in Tustin, CA
* Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)
