Who is agile in South Africa?

About the Book

This book is based on the original Who Is Agile book, only this is a regional version for South Africa. It's a collection of interviews with passionate South African agilists who answer the following questions:

1) What is something people usually don’t know about you but has influenced you in who you are?

2) What would have become of you, if you were not doing the job you do today?

3) What is your biggest challenge and why is it a good thing for you?

4) What drives you?

5) What is your biggest achievement?

6) Is there a piece of music that has a special meaning for you?

7) What is the last book you have read?

8) What question do you think we should also ask and what is the answer?

9) Whom do you think we should ask next in South Africa?

10) Whom do you think we should ask next not in South Africa?

11) How would you define your relation to the South African Agile community?

If you'd like to get to know some of the people in South Africa who are dedicated to agile a little bit better this is the book for you.

My passion for agile is lived daily at Growing Agile. My personal motto is ‘be brave’, and I embody this by taking on challenges one small step at a time. On weekends you can find me planting on the farm, building things or playing with my fur children.

I've worked with agile approaches since 2001 when I joined an eXtreme Programming team as their "Onsite customer". After working in a range of roles and companies as an agile coach, trainer, and leader, I now focus on helping individuals, either though one on one coaching, or through books and courses that inspire them to grow their agile and leadership skills. I also work part time as an accreditor for ICAgile helping trainers around the world create engaging learning experiences.
