Welcome to the Coalition! Introduce yourself :-)


Hi @trudelle,

The best thing you can do is get involved in the conversation. We have all sorts of people here from people just beginning their journey to veterans like yourself. I’d love to hear about some of both the wins and losses you’ve seen over the years.

Cheers Brad


Thanks @JayHorsecow, I would love join the podcast. I’m not sure what / if value I could bring to the discussion however. To be totally transparent, I’m new’ish to the HR field (working in it for the last 9 month, coming from IT before that) and I’v been tasked with helping setup the discipline of an Agile strategy that a consultant has setup for the organization.

Always interested in the conversation and if I can provide any feedback / value I’m all for it.


Hi @Shaun_Mitchell,

That’s 9 more months than most people. Don’t discount the value of being new to a field. Often you can see things that people with more experience miss completely.

HR can fit really nicely with Agile. Coming from IT background you probably have the ability to apply systems thinking to the task at hand. I’d be interested in hearing what you have to say.


Hey folks - just joining the group after getting introduced to it at the Toronto SG. Looking forward to reading and listening to what looks like some good stuff! I’m a beer-loving agile coach from NY.


Do we have a persona for beer loving? If not, we should. Welcome @randy

Dive in … start a thread… pile on an existing convo…


Hi, I am William Strydom. I learned about the agile coalition from Alistair Cockburn when I asked him about the agile manifesto some time ago. I am currently very fortunate to be collaborating with @Troy at a client site and he introduced me to the fine things the agile coalition has to offer.

I am a coach who gets fulfillment from helping people grow and reach their fullest potential, whatever their passion or goal may be.

I have been on my agile journey for over a decade and have matured from scrum master to agile practitioner to agile coach to whatever else I enjoy doing. I do enjoy continuous learning and as a result I have tons of certifications, agile and non-agile, for me the certifications are a byproduct not the goal. My focus is the learning; and applying the learning for the growth of individuals and organizations.

I notice some people here at the agile coalition I have crossed paths with on my journey and new names and faces I would enjoy meeting and sharing ideas with. This does feel like my tribe.

I am looking forward to lots of sharing and learning.
