The Agile Caravanserai Podcast with Sanjiv Augustine Inspires your Business Journey

Share Article

From interviews with authors of the Agile Manifesto to conversations with agile business leaders, come together and listen to impactful, authentic stories.

I hope each episode will remind us of our shared agile values, and thus bring us closer together.

Hosted by Agile industry veteran, management consultant and author Sanjiv Augustine, the Agile Caravanserai podcast provides business inspiration through brief conversations with guests ranging from Agile Manifesto signatories to passionate young agilists and captains of industry.

The Agile Caravanserai celebrates 20 years of the Agile movement, and highlights the personal and professional journey which agilists embark upon. In days gone by, Caravanserais historically provided rest, recovery and community for travelers along the Silk Road, as this podcast does for agilists along their journey.

Each 15-minute episode features a guest who has made an impact on business, IT, the project management field, and/or life in general with Agile, and who has inspired Sanjiv’s own journey with Agile methods.

“I hope each episode will remind us of our shared agile values, and thus bring us closer together,” says host Sanjiv Augustine. A champion of the Via Media or middle way, Sanjiv creates a space for all business leaders to come together regardless of frameworks and dogma.

Agile Caravanserai explores timely topics like how agilists are faring in the pandemic, how we can extend our work to find meaning and purpose, and how we can connect, inspire and support each other.

The first guests have been Agile Manifesto authors Jim Highsmith, Alistair Cockburn, Bob Martin and Jeff Sutherland.
