What Agile Accounts Do I Follow on Social Media?

While there are thousands of people and organizations tweeting about Agile and Scrum, here are some of the accounts of thought leaders, organizations, and news sources that I follow for news and inspiration.

Tech Industry Thought Leaders

Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum, CEO of Scrum Inc. Interesting mix of articles, work with clients, travel, and international tech news.

Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, founder of Scrum.org. Scwaber doesn’t post often, but when he does, it’s worth reading.

Mike Cohn, Agile/Scrum trainer, author, and principal at Mountain Goat Software. Great tips and links to his prolific blog about all things practical when implementing and maintaining Agile and Scrum.

Ken Rubin, Scrum consultant and author of The Essential Scrum. Regularly posts about Scrum events, terms, and practicis.

Jim Highsmith, Agile Manifesto signatory and executive consultant. Highsmith curates an interesting collection of Agile and tech news as well as his content and blog posts on his ThoughtWorks company website.

Geoff Watts, author of several Scrum leadership texts and coaching guides, based in the UK. Insightful Twitterer.

Ilan Goldstein, Scrum trainer and author based in Australia. I appreciated his book, Scrum Shortcuts, while writing Agile Faculty.

Scrum.org is Scrum co-creator Ken Schwaber’s professional organization for Scrum training and certifications.
