100+ Top Agile Blogs

agile blogs

Hi guys, this week I bring you a different type of blog post. For several weeks I have been collecting a list of some of the best Agile Blogs :)

It seems that I got a pretty long list therefore I am passing it to you. The list is ordered based on Alexa.com raking with the exception of the top three blogs where I could not isolate personal blogs from msdn.com and blogspot.de therefore the top three are not accurate.

If you find any errors, or if you have more blogs to add to this list just contact me :)

If you find more blogs that you think that could be added to this list just leave a comment.

I hope you appreciate this list.

    Hi Luis,
    I went through your post it is indeed very effective knowledge for Agile Process.The links which you provided are even more helpful. I also like to share with you some facts about Agile from http://www.scrumstudy.com/.

    How Agile models became popular?
    Agile development models addressed the shortcomings associated with traditional project management models in meeting the ever-growing environmental demands and expectations that organizations were facing.

    Hope you find this effective.

      Hi Joseph,

      Sorry but I am not the right person to discuss the whole Scrum Study approach…

      TO be honest having a ScrumBook or whatever is not the right approach and in my opinion does not help at all the scrum movement… You treat Scrum as a process and Scrum is so much more than that…

      Really sorry for my honest opinion but its what I feel.
      Luis

    Hi,
    nice list! Thank you! I appreciate it!

  4. Hi Luis,

    Cheers for taking the time to put all the top blogs in one place.

    My question…

    Would you count Business Analyst Guru (ba-guru.com) in your top 100?

    Cheers,
    Matt

    I want to share a resource that I thought might be a good fit for your article.
    They offer online programs and individual training courses which are all endorsed by the IIBA ®.

    Here are the details:
    name: Business Analysis Excellence
    website: http://www.business-analysis-excellence.com/
    Twitter: bacourses
    Alexa – 840953

    Thanks

    I turned this list into a little tool. See http://agile-blogs.github.io/.

    About:
    This site is a automated feed aggregator that tries to get the most recent blogs about agile software development in one place. It aims to provide links to blog posts. A tagging feature helps ordering the posts.

    We will linke directly to the feed sources in our feed and not host the contents of your blogs except for the /pages/ listings.

    The site is currently in beta stadium. That means: We are looking for new Authors.

    The site tries not to build content, but a directory of links. Seems strange in 2015 but the question “Whats hot and new in agile” does not ask for storing of the contents of the site.

    Hi Luis,

    here is a new agile blog, which focuses on agile product management and the PO roll. Should be considered as well:

    Luis, Great list. I know you must have put lot of efforts in compiling the list.

    Lot of real-world agile knowledge can be gained by following these agile experts. The thing with agile is that principally, it is not difficult to understand as a concept but more often than not, the challenges are faced in its implementations.

    That is because of so many reasons but that’s not the point – for me, agile is, do agile whenever you can, wherever you are with whatever you have … it feels like real life to me where nothing is certain – only your ability to deal with an uncertain next counts.

    While I looked at these experts, I learned that there were a few people whom I did not know so I created a twitter list with all these experts to learn something from the experts insights – I thought I should share the list if any other agile enthusiast wants to follow the list – twitter.com/utpalvaishnav/lists/agile

    There are many agile/leadership/project managers bloggers on the list that I admire. I hope some day I could join them on a top 1000 list :)

      Hi :) two years ago I was not even on the top 10 000 :) Now I am on top 100 :).

      During 2015 I want to become top 25 :) It requires a lot of work but anyone can do it :)

      All the best for 2015.

    If you base your ranking only on the Alexa score (which I admit is one of the few publicly available data about web site trafic… but it is far from being perfect or precise), you should title the list, the 100 Agile blogs with the highest traffic, which might not be correlated with quality as web promotion and Agile knowledge are two different set of skills.

      Next time I know that I can talk with you to get your help ;)

      Send me the URL of the blog post that you will prepare with the best 100 Blog posts based on the quality ;)

      Speaking and comment is easy, but taking the time and actually create these kind of blog posts that is a different story ;)

      I am looking forward for your blog post ;)

      Cheers,
      Luis

    It’s great to have my blog in this top 100 list of agile blogs, big thanks Luis!

    And an even BIGGER THANKS for writing the book Getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives with me.

    You have significantly increased the awareness for agile retrospectives and your contributions to help people all around the world to do retrospectives in a meaningful way are incredible!!!

    I’m really enjoying how we are collaborating, this is awesome :-)

    Great list, Luis.

    I know it’s LOT of work as I heard from Peter (@agilescout) when he did the similar exercise in past. It’s great to have 2 names in the list that I am associated with: AgileScout (thanks to Peter) and OutSystems (I work with them).

    Hi Luis,

    Great list! Some new ones I’ve added onto my own list, thanks for compiling.

    You might want to add http://www.axisagile.com.au/blog to the list. Based on the alexa ranking, it might come in around the 70’s. :-)

    Thanks!

    Thank you for putting this wonderful list together. One small request: I don’t see any blogs from India featured on this list. I was hoping to see at least Naresh Jain’s blog (Managed Chaos) – http://blogs.agilefaqs.com/ which has a Alexa rank of 832,875. Thanks again.

    Not bad, though it would be even better if you dug deeper like our Top 200 list:

        Adventures in Scaling Agile (www.prettyagile.com) is ranked 3,411,384, does that make the “top 100”? ;-)
