Rajeswari (Raje) Kailasam commented on the article, "Why Shouldn't I Show Half-Complete Stories in the Sprint Review?"


Raje engages with clients as a participant, listener, learner, collaborator, facilitator, trainer and a mentor during their Agile adoption and transformation journeys.

During the period 2012 to 2013 Raje worked / interacted extensively with Agile+Lean professionals, entrepreneurs, veterans, small business owners and spiritual seekers and was inspired to create the 5 Step-Presencing method (for introspection and retrospectives),  Agile Immersionists Method (A.I.M) and the concept of Product Persona.  She believes that personal transformation / breaking barriers (Ukemi) is a key element that enables a coach to become a transformation coach.

Additionally Rajes' deep engagement with Agile (CSP /CSPO /CSPM), product (Pragmatic certified Product Management) process (CMMI), project management (PMP) background builds confidence in her skills and inspires her clients to “Be Agile” rather than just “Do Agile”.
