Louis-Philippe first discovered Agile while toying with test-driven development and continuous integration in 2004. He then encountered XP, Scrum and never wanted to do another traditional IT project afterwards. Louis-Philippe works as an Agile coach and trainer where he helps people exceed their own expectations. Author on many Agile blogs, he has decided to write about soft skills in Agile software development, a topic he believes is often neglected but overly powerful in any team. Louis-Philippe strongly believes that teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage because it is so powerful and so rare. While the Agile litterature talks about engineering practices or the processes to put in place, seldom are books who address the importance of soft skills between teammates.
