Andrea Chiou

I first met Yves at Amplify Your Effectiveness conference last fall (2011). We were in touch off and on since then through social media and email, but I think he just has a sixth sense for how things are supposed to work out. I was invited by him (though he says I offered) to help put some finishing touches on his Who Is Agile book, especially his ‘introductions’. This ‘little’ project has turned into a coss-Atlantic collaboration and a great learning opportunity for me. I have learned so much from Yves about trust. Yves trusted me and we succeeded. When I wasn’t sure, I asked, and sometimes he threw the question right back at me. Sometimes he took ownership when it was important. He’s a stellar person to work with. Keep up the outreach to the agile community, Yves. We all need it and benefit from it!
