We’ve reached a stage in the evolution of work where some of the folks now entering the workforce were raised by professional Agile practitioners. This might not seem like a big deal, but consider that this is a generation that will not have to go through the process of unlearning all the dysfunctional practices that most of us had to let go of. These are folks who have been working in an agile way their whole lives and, because it is native to them, they are free from the cognitive dissonance most of us face when we move to a more Agile state. 

In this interview I am joined by Bria Johnson and Blake Halvorson. Both of them were raised by seasoned Agile practitioners. Bria and Blake used Agile throughout their schooling and entered the workforce already deep with knowledge of how it works. During the interview, we explore how they came to Agile, how they employed it in school, and how they’ve used it since leaving school. 

For me, one of the most powerful parts of the interview was when Bria and Blake explained how they approached their schoolwork in college. Their seemingly simple approach is so massively different from the way I managed my work in school—it left me very envious.

Interesting, I never thought of people being raised by Agile practitioners and now entering the workforce.

Very interesting.. I wonder how will it be, and how far the next generation will use agile

Excellent article, thanks for sharing, we will have it ... !!!

Wonderful content.
In the article, agile expertise is described as the skill mastered thru academics.
Agile skills acquired through the structured trainings can be effectively used if (and only if) the person possesses additional technical proficiencies such as software programming, that fits in to the agile approach.
On the other hand, if the "agile" alone is imparted thru academics without any attached add-on, the skill would become redundant as the individual would not be employable in any of the non-agile platforms - A pessimistic approach.

Thanks for sharing
