My name is Tomas Rybing and I’m an agileist.
What is an agileist? It’s the words agile and idealist put together. With agile I mean software development methods like Scrum and Kanban that are based on Lean, where solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing and (sometimes) cross-functional teams. Agile promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery and continuous improvements. An idealist is a person that have high ambitions and strive towards a greater goal, they ”aim for the stars” and acts upon that goal.
To fully define an agileist – he or she helps and coaches other people, thinks a step further, and is also realistic and know that there is a long way to go to ”reach for the stars”.
Some more words about me. I live in Stockholm, Sweden. I have been working in the IT industry since 1996. My career started as a consultant and programmer, working with Internet and e-business. From 2007 my focus has switched to be more on team leading, project leading, product management and development methods. I have a wife and two kids. Are in mid life crisis, but I don’t own a motorcycle. Big fan of penguins and pyramids.
