Hi everyone. This looks like an awesome initiative, but rarely see any mention about it (until yesterday), so have only just joined. Happy to help as well as learn.
Some might call me a “seasoned” practitioner, having 2 decades’ experience in Agile. I’ve a background in software development, product development and leading business solution projects for corporates and government; since 2005 began using Agile techniques across business functions (have applied it successfully from sales to social care). I continually seek to apply Agile practices and continually learn new techniques, methods, tricks that make the continuous learning fun.
I started my Agile journey in the early 1990s (development lead on the first RAD (Rapid Application Development) projects undertaken in UK banks); subsequently done a tremendous amount with DSDM (later DSDM Atern), eXtreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Agile Unified Process (AUP), Rational Unified Process (RUP), Lean and Lean Six Sigma; used DSDM to enhance XP and Scrum (really beneficial), more recently expanding Agile into programs and portfolios, using AgilePF, LeSS, DAD, Nexus, and still struggle to be sold on colossal SAFe.
On my journey I have authored quite a few blogs, co-authored a few books on projects and Agile, presented a few times. Tweet a little too often via various accounts, including @AGILEartisan. I’m an active member of the Agile Business Consortium (agilebusiness.org) and have helped them develop their Agile Culture and Leadership guidance.
Looking forward to some good discussions.
