Since then, he’s helped thousands of people across hundreds of organizations learn better ways of making software, carefully reviewing and revising methods with the greatest impact and return on investment. Today, he leads an effort to modernize Agile by removing outdated practices and leveraging the best of what the software community and other industries have learned about achieving awesome results. Modern agile practitioners work to Make People Awesome, Make Safety A Prerequisite, Experiment & Learn Rapidly and Deliver Value Continuously.

He’s active on Twitter, Snapchat and the emerging ModernAgile.org community.







Joshua's top 3 tips for delivering more value:


  1. Look at usage metrics or you you're flying blind and don't know if you're delivering value

  2. Spend time validating or invalidating ideas before you start to work on them

  3. Hunt for bargains - look for high value at low cost
