Announcing the New Agile Mentors Podcast

Today we’re announcing the launch of our new Agile Mentors Podcast. You can enjoy two new episodes starting today, with more content published each week.

Join me, Brian Milner, and a guest co-host each week to hear about a range of agile topics. This select group of agile experts and I will be sharing with you what we’ve seen from thousands of companies’ agile implementations: the perils and pitfalls, as well as the secrets to success. And we’ll also share the practical lessons we’ve learned along the way so you can apply them in your own career if you choose.

The Agile and Scrum Podcast You’ve Been Searching for Has Arrived!

Whether you are new to agile and need some advice, or are an experienced product owner, Scrum Master, or agile coach looking to get and give advice, this podcast is designed for you. Our podcast isn’t just a couple of insiders spouting wisdom; we want to hear from you as well. You can contact the show to let us know your own experiences, lessons you’ve learned, and questions you’d like answered. We hope you’ll join us to mentor and be mentored.

For our debut episode I’m joined by Mike Cohn. In addition to authoring several books, Mike also has over 20 years of experience building high-performing software development teams and organizations through the use of agile and Scrum. We talk about how to succeed with agile, from choosing an agile framework to how to get started to knowing when you need to break the rules.

In Episode Two, Mike returns to dive into Scrum Masters and agile, specifically the Scrum Master role—including some great resume tips for getting your foot in the door when you don’t have any experience yet working as a Scrum Master for a Scrum team.

Why This Podcast? Why Now?

One of the many benefits of Scrum and agile training with Mountain Goat Software is membership in our Agile Mentors Community. This unique space is designed for a global community of agile practitioners to question, comment and learn—from one another—how to succeed with agile in the real world.

With a private, moderated forum, monthly Q&As with Mike Cohn, lean coffee events, access to an agile resource library, and more, this is the place for agile enthusiasts to gather to mentor and be mentored. The podcast seemed like a natural way to expand this concept out into the wider world of agile enthusiasts and those striving to make agile work for their specific context.

The Agile Mentors Podcast expands on the questions, comments, and wonderings of Agile Mentors Community members and brings the discussions about agile transformation into a public forum.
