About the Author
In writing The Human Side of Agile, Gil Broza has tapped into fundamental concerns -- and challenges -- of Agile practitioners. For not only does the "human" in the book's title refer to the people that make up any Agile team, it also pertains to those who lead them, to those who run the company, and to the people who purchase and use the end product. Gil encourages the reader to take up servant leadership and to steer all involved toward the excellence promised by mindfully executed Agile.
Since 2004, Gil has trained and coached more than 6,000 professionals who then delighted their customers, shipped working software on time, and rediscovered passion for their work. Gil has also:
- Written the popular book The Agile Mind-Set, to help practitioners and leaders alike master the Agile thought process (without saying “Scrum” or “SAFe”)
- Worked as a development manager, team leader, and programmer for 12 years, 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 offers much-needed services, ranging from the basic to the advanced, to help Agile leaders and teams thrive. In addition, he provides training, coaching programs, workshops, quick guidance, and facilitation services to fix lackluster Agile attempts and support ongoing Agile improvement efforts. He is in high demand by companies looking to fully realize Agile’s potential.

Many Coaches will teach you how to do Agile, how to follow the rule and change your process (for the better).
Many times you will hear that Agile is NOT a silver bullet, it is a Silver Mirror..
However it can take time.. Sometimes a long time for the true impacts of agile to manifest in your teams.
The realization that they have to embrace being agile and its tenets at their core. This change can cause distributions and tensions as people try to Grasp the change that is happening.
I would list this book as a MUST READ for anyone undergoing agile adoption especially at the end of year one.
I've seen many teams implement the agile practices and then get stuck, not making much more progress on the journey toward being agile.
One of the frequent comments about agile is that it doesn't *cause* problems with your development efforts, but it will *expose* problems. But what then? This book answers both of those problems. After you've implemented the practices, the next step is to make progress on the human side with those problems that are exposed.
You'll learn about designing your role, growing an Agile team, engaging in powerful conversations, being an Agile leader, and sustaining your team for the long term. You'll find plenty of extra food for thought if you follow the links in the notes section, and you can download handy one- and two-page worksheets and resources from the book's companion website.
Gil's book is the most practical "how-to" for Agile leaders and Agile change agents that I've found so far.
The book opened my mind as a result of gathering more responsibilities as an Agile Team Leader (ATL), as he names perfectly. Furthermore, it covers a fully understanding of building a strong team and keeping them productive and motivated.
For these reasons, I would recommend it to any person accountable for delivering awesome products in a sustainable environment and pleasant.
