In this episode of the Software Process and Measurement Cast we feature our interview with Yves Hanoulle, builder of community builders.  We discussed collaboration, coaching retreats and the future of Agile.  Yves is an Agile thought leader among thought leaders and he shared his wisdom the Software Process and Measurement Cast listeners.

Yves' Bio:

Yves Hanoulle has taken on almost every role in the software development field, from software support, developer, trainer, scrum master to agile coach. Over the last 10 years, Yves has focused on agile coaching. Yves grows community builders. His personal goal is to make his customers independent from him as soon as possible. Yves is the inventor of the Who is Agile series of books and the co-inventor of the leadership game. Although he co-invented Pair Coaching & Coach Retreats, Yves is not interested in being a rock star coach inventing new methodologies, he rather wants to mix existing ideas like a thought disc jockey, adjusting to the needs of the audience.

In the next SPaMCAST we feature our essay on Agile release planning *** MEG june 10 – 15 2013****.  Unless your project consists of one or two sprints and a cloud of dust (see three yards and a cloud of dust) you will need to tackle release planning.  It does not have to be as hard as many people want you to believe.  We will have new entries from the Software Sensei (Kim Pries) and Jo Ann Sweeney with her Explaining Change column.
