We at the Agile Uprising are saddened by this loss. Mike's passing will leave a void that cannot be underestimated.

We honor Mike Beedle with this rebroadcast from our Agile Manifesto author review.

Mike shared his story as one of the very first adopters of the Scrum framework and his early involvement with Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland.

Mike, if you're listening from the Great Stand Up, thank you for all you've done.

In addition to his priceless contribution to the agile community and to businesses, Mike was one of the most generous men I’ve known.

He will be missed as giant in his field but, even more, he will be missed as a friend.
