Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 246
The Software Process and Measurement Cast 246 features my interview with Tobias Mayer. We discussed his new book, The People's Scrum: Agile Ideas for Revolutionary Transformation. We met on the barricades and I was informed and radicalized a little bit!
Tobias Mayer has a background in software development, publishing, theatre arts, and community service work. He began his Agile journey at Yahoo! in 2003, and spent the years 2005-12 working as a freelance change agent, trainer and facilitator, providing coaching and consulting services to teams and organizations wishing to make a transition to more agile, trustful and team-centered ways of working. An online essayist, Tobias blogs at businesscraftsmanship.com, where he frequently challenges the status quo, and offers ideas to inspire other practitioners in the organizational development field. Tobias returned to Yahoo! in 2013 where he is engaged as a Scrum coach and internal consultant.
