Howard Sublett and the team from SolutionsIQ have been hard at work all week on the exhibition floor doing their own interviews with the thought leaders, presenters and attendees of Agile 2015. Dave and Howard talk about highlights from the interviews and share their thoughts on the Agile 2015.
My good friend Daniel Gullo stopped by during Agile 2014 to give an update on his recent trip to India to teach some classes and speak at the Scrum Alliance Regional Event in India. Daniel is also getting ready to give the keynote at the Scrum Alliance Regional Scrum Gathering in Rio. During the interview we talked about his Agile 2014 presentation Raising Agility: Bringing Up The Next Generation of Thought Leaders [Our Children], Homeschooling and Agile as well as important things to consider when hiring an Agile Coach. Daniel is an Agile Coach/Trainer for SolutionsIQ. He is also part of the very small crew of Agile practitioners who hold both Certified Scrum Coach and Certified Scrum Trainer accreditations.
John Rudd is in Orlando this week to give two presentations at Agile 2014. The first, with his brother Charlie, focused on the Agile transformation that SolutionsIQ went through after they made the decision to move to Agile.
The second presentation was on Active Portfolio Management. Portfolio Management is a VERY hot topic at Agile 2014 and there are a variety of opinions about how to address understanding value, and what tools should be used to figure out what to prioritize.
John Rudd brings a truly unique perspective to this conversation. Not only is he the Managing Director of SolutionsIQ, but he has years of experience working in investment banking and financial consulting. John shares his thoughts on which tools from the financial world are best applied when trying to determine what to prioritize in the Agile Portfolio.
