 Ipek Sahra Özgüler (Özgüler):   Hi Simon. Welcome to PMWJ. Please tell us about your recent project ‘The challenges with agile’, published by Knowledge Train in March 2017.

Simon Buehring (Buehring):      The challenges with agile is a new ebook I developed to assist teams who are getting to grips with agile. It contains insights from 6 industry experts who share their most common agile challenges and suggestions on how to overcome them.

Özgüler:       What is the main objective of conducting this project?

Buehring:     As the Managing Director of Knowledge Train, an AgilePM training provider, I have noticed in recent years an increasing interest in learning how to manage agile projects. Agile is becoming more popular because organizations need to adapt to a fast-changing digital world.  Implementing agile methods inevitably comes with challenges, so many organizations are reluctant to embrace such a transition.

Novices can gain a better understanding of agile methods by hearing different perspectives from experienced agile practitioner. Every agile practitioner has an experience or a lesson to share. I wanted to gather a collection of these stories from experienced practitioners to develop this ebook.

Özgüler:       Who made contributions to this project?
