The Lurnist Show

By Debra Hildebrand
Celebrating Women in Agile
The Lurnist Show, with host Debra Hildebrand and co-host Lauryn Jenne, is broadcast live on Business RadioX every fourth Tuesday of the month. We interview women who are leading scrum teams, building great products as a product owner or product manager, coaching or leading agile transformations, agile teachers and trainers, and any other women in roles that are related to the agile field.

Our goal is to highlight these women and to inspire young girls to enter the agile field.
