Experience Reports Initiative
The Experience Report initiative promotes the writing and timely sharing of firsthand Agile experiences. The primary activity of the Agile Experience Report initiative is to recruit potential authors from a broad and diverse group of authors from the Agile community and aid them to write short (6-8 pages) insightful reports about their experiences. Reports are published on the Agile Alliance website and authors are invited to present their report at an upcoming Agile conference.
We are currently looking for volunteers to review proposals for experience reports and help and encourage authors in the role of shepherd/advocate. Each experience report has a shepherd.
A shepherd works closely with their authors, reviewing drafts and freely giving constructive advice. They ask clarifying questions and suggest improvements.The time it takes to shepherd a report can vary as some authors start with a well-formed story and quickly write a first draft while others need more time and guidance time to find their writing rhythm.
