My name is Matthieu Cornillon. I have wandered through a bunch of different roles, landing in early 2011 in the project management department at a software company using Scrum. Deeply involved in the company’s original move to Scrum, our department was heavily invested in stewardship of organizational agility. In late 2013, after a bit of a slide towards traditional project management, we overhauled our department, switching to a nearly exclusive focus on Agile Coaching. As I began the transition, I started this blog to capture my observations about learning how to do it.
Why “growing truffles”? You can’t just plant truffles. You can only arrange the conditions propitious to their growth, stand back, and let nature take its course. Seems an apt analogy for coaching Agile teams.
Please follow me on Twitter, and I will try my best to write vaguely interesting or at least amusing things from time to time to make it worth your while: @growingtruffles.
