Agile Uprising is a purpose-built network that focuses on the advancement of the agile mindset and global professional networking between leading agilists. We will remain agnostic of certifying bodies and focus purely on the advancement of the agile craft. Our network will evolve over time, and at the core our online community will remain free to join – forever. We will leverage both traditional and emerging communication and collaboration channels to explore various topics of interest with a direct focus on removing external influences from sponsors, partners and other organizations.
MINDSET, NETWORK, FREE!
This is a group founded by passionate practitioners for passionate practitioners, and not a revenue-generating organization.
OUR NETWORK: The Coalition
The Coalition is our base network. It is a purposefully built, free community that is open to all agile practitioners of all experience levels. It is a safe place to ask questions, collaborate, grow and network with other agile practitioners around the globe.
Our blog is a curated content that is meant to provide various views into interesting areas of lean and agile concepts. Members are encouraged to contribute content for review to be published on our blog.
Our podcasting network is one of our more dynamic content platforms to connect with our broad spectrum of members. We have pointed topics, rapid fire sessions and even guests lined up for the show!
The Manifesto Review
One of the Uprising’s first projects meant to contribute back to the community was a series of podcasts with almost all of the original signers of the Agile Manifesto.
Agile Uprising is managed by a board, each member with equal voice and meant to represent the various views of our large community. The board regularly meets and is governed by by-laws to ensure the community is properly maintained.
This network is meant to be dynamic and iterative. We have an endless stream of ideas and experiments we look to run, but also look to our members to share feedback. Some ideas will not work, others may create a whole new platform! The fun is in the experimentation.
