Rally-Point Backlog author - Phillipe Cantin
 

Author of "No other book" and "Really this is my first one", Phillipe Cantin is a Software developer turned Team Lead turned Agile coach with the intent to share to a larger audience.

After 12 years of software development, during which he had the chance of working in different fields of application, Phillipe transitioned toward leadership positions and Agile methodologies around 2005.  Since that date he never stopped using Scrum in a multitude of projects and had the chance of playing all of the Scrum roles, PO being his favourite by a large margin.

In parallel, Phillipe started blogging in 2009 on many subjects including Agile methods, programming and leadership. Around 2014, in an effort to share some of his successful methods, the idea of writing an actual book on Agile put him on the long road to the publication of Rally-Point Backlog.  Now bitten by the writing bug, Phillipe is working on a continuation book on Sprint Dynamics, explaining the balancing act of maintaining predictability and team engagement during the production iterations.

 

I have crossed paths with many Agilists throughout my career, each with their strengths and weaknesses, but rarely did I see such a balance between the will to deliver effectively, the will to build high value products and the will to create a healthy, fun and engaging work environment.
