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 do you think makes a great team?

6. What is the essence of Agile?

7. What is the last book you have read and which book made a huge impact in your life?

8. If you were going to have a dinner party with anyone alive or deceased - which three people would you invite and why?

9. What is the one piece of advice you would give to someone just starting with Agile?

10. What question do you think I should also ask and what is your answer?

11. Whom do you think we should ask next in Australia and/or New Zealand and why do you feel they should be included in the book?

Based on the original "Who Is Agile" book, this book is a regional version for Australia & New Zealand. Whether you’re a novice or an Agile Guru, this book is going to help you learn a bit about the people behind the names & get their perspective on Agile.
