Most Valuable Agile Player in the UK

Wow, what an accolade! I can’t actually believe I won this award at the UK’s first ever Agile Awards this week. In my mind, there are plenty of other people who are probably more deserving than me, but naturally I am really flattered by the recognition.

I’d like to thank my new sponsor – tinyPM – since their support, and the support of others before them, is one of the things that spurs me on when it’s difficult to find time to keep blogging. If you haven’t already had a quick look at their product, take a look at their web site.

I’d also like to thank my wife and children for putting up with my obsession, which has obviously taken a lot of effort at times!

But most of all, I’d like to thank you - my readers. Without you, my blog would not be the success that it now is, and I thank you sincerely for coming back and telling your friends. I hope you have all found something useful here to help you with your own adoption of agile development methods. And if you have, here’s another plea from me to you to link to this blog from your own blog or web site, so in future it can be found more easily by others.

That’s it – emotional acceptance speech over.

Here are the other very deserving award winners.

Kelly.

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
