Esther Derby started out as a programmer toting around a 52-lb “portable” computer, and she was so good at coding that they made her a manager… It was due in part to this experience that Esther began her journey to understanding organizational dynamics. She went in search of a mentor and was fortunate to find Jerry Weinberg. Esther is possibly best known for authoring “Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great”, which she touches on here as well. As for the topic of her Southern Fried Agile keynote, you’ll have to stay tuned for that!
