Jean Tabaka, Agile Fellow with Rally Software, is continuing on her 30-year path of learning about software development principles, processes, and practices for people. She seeks a humane approach to bringing high value to our communities of creators and consumers. This has led her to move into disciplines that reach beyond traditional Agile or Lean frameworks: systems thinking, complexity theory, design thinking as well as work in empathy and vulnerability. Jean holds a Masters in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University. She is the author of “Collaboration Explained” and a variety of articles on Agile, organizational change, team dynamics, Lean thinking, and other associated topics. Occasionally, Jean blogs at www.rallydev.com/agileblog and can be followed on twitter as
