What we're about

We are a group of professionals. Our belief is that, Agile is different from other disciplines and the way to learn Agile is also unique. We feel, while attending short courses, and sitting certification exams may help a little, much more is needed to learn, apply and practice Agile. Therefore we have set up a Toastmasters club with a strong interest in Agile for individuals to immerse in an environment that has a genuine interest in Agile. Toastmasters are well known its leadership and communications training which are two basic skills (leadership and communications) required when practising Agile. We believe, over a period, participants @ our sessions will learn Agile better and develop traits to practice Agile effectively than how it is practised currently.
