About the Author
In writing The Agile Mind-Set, Gil Broza has addressed an aching need shared by organizations worldwide. As his experience and observations confirm, many who adopt Agile pay too much attention to processes and tools, and are disenchanted with the results. Some are in denial while some are searching for a magic bullet. Still more are stranded on a mediocre performance plateau, stalled in a mishmash of "best practices," and looking for answers.
In the last 11 years alone, Gil has mentored and coached more than 2,000 professionals who then delighted their customers, shipped working software on time, and rediscovered passion for their work. He has also:
- Worked as a development manager, team leader, and programmer for 12 years, successfully applying Agile methods since 2001
- Coached dozens of private- and public-sector clients, large and small, including independent software vendors, custom development firms, and IS/IT departments
- Served as a regular writer for the prestigious projectmanagement.com (a PMI publication), contributing articles on effective Agile behaviors
- Given keynotes and interactive talks at various conferences worldwide
Gil provides workshops, consulting, facilitation services, and enablement programs to fix lackluster Agile attempts and support ongoing Agile improvement efforts. In addition, he offers much-needed services to help ScrumMasters, team leaders, and managers grow as servant leaders. He is in high demand by organizations looking to fully realize Agile's potential.

This book is an easy read and essential for all practitioners of agile product development, agile service delivery and agile strategic planning. It is especially important for decision makers (managers, directors, VPs, CxOs) who think that this fundamental change in business perspective can be "outsourced" to the people who are doing the day-to-day delivery to customers. Agility requires involvement, support and understanding from the top. This book delivers the concepts to be understood.
