We are delighted to bring you this volume of the best agile articles of 2018. Our goal in publishing this book was to cull through the many articles that are published every year to bring you a curated set of high-quality articles that capture the latest knowledge and experience of the agile community in one compact volume.
Our purpose is twofold. First, we understand that it can be hard to figure out where to go when looking for ideas, answers, and relevant articles. There are thousands of blogs, videos, books, and other resources available at the click of a mouse. But that can be a lot to sort through. So, we thought we could be of some assistance. Second, we wanted to bring some visibility to many people who are doing good work in this field and are providing helpful resources. Our hope is that this publication will help them connect to you, the ones they are writing for. Our intention is that the Best Agile Articles publication is to be by the agile community as a service to the agile community and for the agile community. With that in mind, we pulled together a great group of volunteers to help get this work into your hands. The articles in this volume were selected by:
- A diverse Nominating Committee of nineteen people with expertise in a variety of areas related to agile.
- The agile community. A call for nominations went out in early 2019 and several dozen articles were nominated by the community.
The articles themselves cover a wide variety of topics including organizational structure, culture, and agile leadership. There is something for almost everyone here. This is the second book in the series. The first book, Best Agile Articles of 2017, is available for download on this site or you can purchase its hardcopy on Amazon.
We are thankful for the great participation by the agile community at large. If you would like to participate in delivering the best agile articles in future years, look out for further announcements on Tandem Coaching Academy.
