In each episode of Agile Caravanserai, we meet someone who has been an inspiration to me in my own agile journey. They will range from seasoned Agile Manifesto signatories to passionate young agilists, to captains of industry. We’ll meet these people who have the practical and humanistic essence of agile deep in their veins and in their hearts.

Now, more than ever, our community is aligning in support of each other as we journey through the pandemic’s business and personal shockwaves. These difficult times have also forced us each one to examine our own lives more closely. Even in the middle of individual separation and isolation, many are finding meaning and purpose through community and connection.

Millions are turning lessons from the pandemic into an opportunity to rethink their lives, reinvent themselves and to help others in dire need.

Caravanserais provided rest, recovery and community for travelers along the Silk Road. Similarly, we hope that our episodes will provide rest, inspiration and hope. We hope each episode will remind us of our shared agile values, and thus bring us closer together.

This is a time for transformation. I invite you to join me as we journey together.
