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 (a PMI publication), contributing articles on effective Agile behaviors
  • Given keynotes and interactive talks at various conferences worldwide
Throughout his career, Gil has focused on human characteristics that prevent positive outcomes in software development teams. These include limiting habits, fear of change, outdated beliefs, and blind spots. In helping teams overcome these factors, he supports them in reaching ever-higher levels of performance, confidence, and accomplishment.

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.
