In case you’re into Agile and Lean, live in europe but had been living on a cave over the last week, it will be very interesting for you to take notice of the birth of a great initiative by Jurgen Appelo consisting on building a european network of Agile & Lean professionals and thinkers.
The purpose of this network is under discussion, but will probably include to provide better awareness of the Agile & Lean transformation over europe, be a source of information, support and collaboration and organize some kind of big european event for Agile & Lean people in europe (altough many have claimed that this kind of events do exists, including the XP conference and the Lean&Kanban Europe initiative). You can find a lot more at Jurgen’s site.
Right now, the network has been created in LinkedIn, and in an amazing time of a few days it have reached nearly 350 members. Kudos for Jurgen! I expect great things (and thinks ) to come from this network, and I’m really eager to meet with some of them at XP2011 (Madrid, May 2011).
