I want to recommend this great introduction to agile development by Henrik Kniberg.
A personal experience with Henrik Kniberg
I was sitting at lunch together with some friends. It was the last day of at the Agile 2012 conference in Dallas and this guy that the rest of the people knew asked if he could join us for lunch. Sure…you can J He said down next to me and I was politely asking him for his name! People at the table were staring at me! He answered very politely “I’m Henrik” and I then asked where he was from. He said “I’m from Sweden”. I was surprised – Sweden is the brother people of Denmark and I told him so and said that I was from Copenhagen… after like 2-5 seconds a bell was ringing in my head and I asked him about his last name…..”Kniberg”. Saying it in English did make me think an extra 2 sec. but then I got it! Aaaaa you are that guy who among other has written “Scrum and XP from the Trenches” and I though how embarrassing it was for me not remembering the face of Henrik Kniberg, but he didn’t seem to mind. The rest of the lunch he was kind, funny and a great guy to talk to with a great insight and talent He got a big plus in my book
