About Us


The Agile Leadership Network was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2005 as the Agile Project Leadership Network. The founders of this organization include many luminaries of the agile community including Jim Highsmith, David Anderson, Mike Cohn, Christopher Avery, Todd Little, Pollyanna Pixton, Doug Decarlo, Donna Fitzgerald, and Lowell Lindstrom.  The Declaration of Interdependence (DOI) was created by this same group to serve as guiding principles to employ Agile and adaptive approaches for linking people, projects and value.  The organization name was changed on May 5, 2011 which removed the word “project” to better reflect our evolving mission.
