About the Book
Throughout 2012 Yves together with Andrea, Marcin, Peter and Guy edited the first volume of Who Is Agile (https://leanpub.com/WhoIsAgile/).
That book told the personal stories of 89 agilists around the world - giving us insight into their private worlds, their background, what makes them individuals who affected the agile community.
The second volume of the Who is Agile book was to be scaled to local, country-specific volumes. This is the Israeli edition.
In this book you will learn to know the remarkable individuals comprisng the Israeli Agile community - some are well known around the world, some have lead the Israeli industry into agility, and some have been hidden behind the scenes, being agile, doing agile work within their workplaces and teams without seeking recognition.
We have sent these people the original questions from the global book - but also some questions to place them in context of the Israeli community.
We also asked them to invite other people - both in Israel for this book, and outside Israel - for the other country books, by this both dicovering the local community and building relations with other global communities.
The questions were not about agile work but about the topic which they probably know really best - theirselves. Their answers have been compiled together with photos and other interesting links about them.
In addition to the answers, we've asked the people to contribute to each other - to reach out and make new connections through the book. Some people have written introductions for other people, some people have added associative links inside other people's texts, expressing theirselves and their interpretations of other people's stories.
These are the questions we asked them:
Tell us a little about yourself - Where do you live? What do you work at? What do you like doing? What else would you like us to know about you?
What is something people usually don’t know about you but has influenced you in who you are?
If you would not be doing what you are doing now, 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?
Is there a piece of music that has a special meaning for you?
What is the last book you have read?
What question do you think I should also ask and what is the answer?
Whom else do you think we should ask these questions in Israel?
Whom else do you think we should ask these questions outside Israel?
How would you define your relation to the Israel Agile community?
Have fun reading their answers.
