About the Book

In 2011, the agile manifesto turned 10 years old. Some of the agile methodologies are even 5 to 10 year older. In the agile world, we pay a lot of attention to the people in the teams. Thanks to mailing lists and social media, agile leaders are very approachable. Yet we don't know them. This book gives you access to learn a little more about agilists. You will find all kinds of people in this book, people who have been on the Agile Alliance board, Gordon Pask Award winners, Scrum masters, Scrum trainers, people who started movements, people who organized agile conferences, famous authors, hard core teammembers, etc.You will also read about people who don't consider themselves agilists. They are in this book because they have inspired agilists, and we dare to say that they actually agree with what we call an agile mindset.

All these people have 2 things in common: they are interesting people and they have remarkable stories.

Yves send them all the same set of questions and asked them to select an extra question from someone else.The answers have been posted on Yves' blog for a while. The book contains one extra answer, per person.

We have finished adding people to the book. It now contains answers from 89 people.

When we have finished and polished the book, we take a nice break and then start of Volume 2 https://leanpub.com/WhoisagileVolume2

(The "Who is" backlog contains +250 people, the order of publication is in order of answers received.)

These are the questions we asked:

What is something people usually don’t know about you but has influenced you in who you are?If you would not have been in IT, what would have become of you?What is your biggest challenge and why is it a good thing for you?What drives you ?What is your biggest achievement?What is the last book you have read?What question do you think I should also ask and what is the answer?What question of one of the co-authors do you also want to answer?Who should be the next person to answer these questions?

Have fun reading their answers.

I continually learn to develop better software and to develop software better, to help others do it and to share that knowledge. I like to share my passion and enthusiasm by speaking publicly to communities small and large and occasionally writing some thoughts at http://marcin.floryan.pl/

Working on the Who Is Agile is a great opportunity to help share great stories with the community and yet another opportunity for me to learn. Thank you Yves.

I am an agile coach working in Washington, DC. I like to help increase understanding, communication, collaboration, workplace engagement, joy and compassion.  These include Clean Language, Non Violent Communication, The Core Protocols (for software teams), Temenos and more.  I blog about these interests as well as my personal journey in becoming a coach at www.adaptivecollaboration.com.  I edit/create the Who Is books because they contribute to this community and broaden the reach of these tools in a very personal way - through the stories of individuals whose lives these tools have changed. I've recently started my own company called, Connections At Work, LLC.
