In August this year, I had the absolute pleasure of travelling to Nashville, Tennessee, to attend Agile 2013, the world’s largest gathering of Agile nerds enthusiasts and those well on their way!Spanning a total of 4. 5 days and 17 exciting tracks it’s needless to say that there were many…
One of the common misconceptions we come across when discussing an Agile transition is “Agile doesn’t scale”.   Needless to say, at Software Education we firmly disagree and we have experience helping large organisations implement “scaled Agile” using a number of approaches.   Our courses discuss the…
Last week I sat on the other side of the classroom for a pleasant change, I attended the Masterclass by Ahmed Sidky “CHANGING THE MINDSET: Achieving Organisational Agility” in Melbourne.   It was a great two days, with a fantastic group of participants. Together we examined what it means to really…
I was recently at Nashville attending Agile 2013 and had the great pleasure of finally meeting Janet Gregory. I have been tweeting with Lisa Crispin for years and it was fabulous to meet the Janet part of the “dynamic duo” that I had not met before. Why the dynamic duo? Lisa and Janet wrote a book…

Eye exams these days have changed a lot since I started going to an eye doctor at a very young age. I remember visiting an old ophthalmologist who ran a very comprehensive and manual set of tests on my eyes. It took over an hour, probably closer to two! Back then, I was not a child to sit quietly…
