Agile Alliance Experience Reports help us understand how Agile really works, the challenges that arise, and how Agile approaches evolve.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Agile2020 was canceled. Yet most of our reporters still finished writing their reports.
There’s nothing like hearing them tell their stories, which they would have been able to do in person at the conference. Agile Alliance is proud to present three amazing Agile coaches who shared their very personal experiences with Agile transformations:
- Kaluhi Anzigale’s report, “What Happens when Agile Goes Away?” Kaluhi joined a company that was on a robust Agile journey where healthy team dynamics and practices were the norms. Then things drastically changed when the company laid off the entire Agile Lead Team.
- Nate Ashford’s report, “Transformation Begins with Me”, explains how he saved his life by deliberately living the principles he espouses at work every day and how that decision made him a better person and a better coach.
- Drew Boyer’s, “The Transformation of a Transformation Agent”, recounts how he rewired his brain and learned to be at peace with being in service and not have coaching be all about him fixing things.
After all three have discussed their experiences, there will be a roundtable discussion about their respective challenges and opportunities, along with a live Q&A session.
The Agile Alliance Experience Report Initiative promotes the writing and timely sharing of firsthand Agile experiences. Initiative Chair Rebecca Wirfs-Brock recruits a broad and diverse group of authors from the Agile community and assists them in writing short (6-8 pages) insightful reports. They are published on the Agile Alliance website and presented at Agile Alliance conferences.
Our goal is to produce more Experience Report webcasts going forward because sharing Agile experiences is vital to Agile community learning and growth. Future dates/times are TBD.
