Chris Hefley (interviewed in SPaMCAST 100) was recently nominated for the #lssc11 Brickell Key Award. The selection committee chairman is seeking advocacy from members of the community as part of the selection process.
If you think he should win, please consider sending the committee chairman, David Anderson, an email as described below by the end of the week (by March 25 2011). Please include any examples or just your thoughts about his contributions to the Lean/Kanban community, or about how LeanKit Kanban has been of benefit to the community.
I am sure all of the nominees deserve the award and I will be approaching all of them for interviews however if you think Chris deserves to the award please support a fellow member of the Software Process and Measurement community.

This year we are announcing the nominees for the Brickell Key Awards in advance of our conference in Long Beach on May 3rd to 6th. The awards will be presented at our banquet dinner on May 5th. All attendees of the conference are invited to attend the event for an additional $75 fee.

I'd like to congratulate (in no particular order)... Russell, Yuval, Mattias, Siddharta, Chris and Richard, for their nomination. It is a great honor to be nominated and as I know all of them personally, I believe them all to be worthy winners. I think we have a very healthy and strong community and the strength of this year's nominations makes this clear.
I am sure that many of you will recognize the candidates as regular contributors to this list and the Kanban community. There are still a few days to influence the selection committees decision. We will be picking the winners soon. We need lots of lead time in order to have the trophies made. However, the winners will be kept a very closely guarded secret until May 5th. Last year's winners, David Joyce and Alisson Vale will be presenting the prizes to the 2011 recipients.
