2016 Accomplishments and Agile Awards – Daniel Gullo
“How can I make a difference so that I may bring peace to this world that I love and cherish so much?” – Gandhi
This is the tagline for my Emails because it reminds me day by day to look for ways to advance the goal of worldwide peace through Agile values, principals, and practices.
I am very honored and blessed to have been nominated for the following three awards:
- Most Valued Agile Professional (Rest of World)
- Most Popular SCRUM Professional (Rest of World)
- Person Who Has Done the Most to Promote Agile
I would be very grateful if you could cast your vote in these three categories. Simply click on the titles above for each award and it will take you to the appropriate destination to vote.
If you know me, you know how dedicated I am to the pursuit of innovation through evangelism of Agile values and principles.
To that end, here are some of my accomplishments and things I have been working on this year in 2016:

Event promoting and advancing the field of coaching within an Agile context which I produced and managed.
June 2016 – AgileNEXT – The NEXT Generation Agile Talk Show
Online talkshow which interviews industry experts, luminaries, and many others and asks the question: “Where Agile is headed NEXT???” I launched this show in June and it is up to Episode 20 at the writing of this article. Subscribers have been increasing exponentially with each new episode.

August 2016 – Real World Agility – Practical Guidance for Agile Practitioners
“This book gives you the answers that a wise mentor would have give you, if you had one. Daniel Gullo shares his insights on the principal questions that everyone coming to the world of Agile will inevitably encounter.”
– Steve Denning, author of The Leader’s Guide to Radical Management
November 2016 – Veteran Outreach
I have developed a plan to help fellow veterans (I was in the US Navy during Desert Storm) take advantage of Agile training so that they may transition to civilian life and work in the corporate world. The plan will begin execution in November with a 50% discount for Active Duty and Veterans taking the CSM Course on Veterans Day.
January 2016 to December 2016
Ongoing FREE coaching and mentoring to hundreds of my students beyond the classroom and others whom I have met at events, online, etc.
These are the highlights of my key accomplishments for the year. There are many other things I do on a daily and weekly basis to advance the cause; including teaching Scrum Master and Product Owner courses, coaching organizations on Kanban, XP and other practices, and producing a monthly newsletter which features guest bloggers from around the community.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the 2016 Agile Awards banquet this year!!
