Top Women in Agile!

Top Women Agile Thought Leaders

I was so very happy when my dear friend and agile coach colleague, Kris Blake, let me know that I was listed in agilescout’s “Top Women in Agile Thought Leadership.”  What’s most exciting about this is the company I keep.  The “big hitters” are on the list – Esther Derby, Johanna Rothman, Deborah Hartmann Preuss, Diana Larsen, Mary Poppendieck, Jean Tabaka, many more – the women I have learned much from and who are the bedrock of the agile community.  The best part are the few names I didn’t know and the “new kids on the block” that I do know – Angela Harms, Karen Greaves, Donna Reed, Ellen Grove.  Welcome, ladies!  You are in my agile coaching tribe and I am very happy to see you take your rightful places as thought leaders.   Read what these women write — it’s worth it.

Hi Lyssa!
I am Scrum Master at and I am trained in coaching. I have been applying over the coaching my teams and each time I’m sure most women have an essential role in the agile process. We have the same view on the matter.
Thank you!

Congratulations! You might be surprised, but *I’m* not. And that is a great list of other female thought leaders in the Agile community. Congrats again.

Lyssa well deserved recognition of what you do for the Agile community. The list is a who’s who of people I follow and a few new ‘faces’ that I’ll check out. Nice way to start the new year!
