Hi James & Shane.
I'm glad to see the promotion of such an Agile book on JR 1 Welcome onboard.

Could you please share with us a bit of your background. And I am not talking about your Agile involvment but more about:
- The kind of projects you worked in
- The kind of role you played in thoses projects
- The team size of the projects, and so on so forth.

Are you more involved aqs a Process guru, or a PM, or a developer ?
Thanks
/JL

Hi, JeanLouis,

I'm a consultant, which means that I've worked with a large variety of teams, from ten-person startups to giant corporations. The teams I've worked with have done internal (IT) development, vertical-market software, and software sold with hardware. There's been web development, rich client development, and server-side development.

Interestingly, the same basic tools have been useful in all of these situations. The best way to approach agile development depends more on the people and organizational structure than it does on the technology involved.

My background is as a programmer. Successful software development, though, requires thinking at many levels--programming, planning, management, process, more--and so I do. We tried to put that perspective into the book as well.
