Nominate someone for the Gordon Pask award

Nominations for the Agile Alliance’s Gordon Pask Award are now open. The award has changed this year from a cash grant to travel sponsorship. Here’s the description:

The Gordon Pask Award recognizes two people whose recent contributions to Agile Practice make them, in the opinion of the Award Committee, people others in the field should emulate. In order that people might emulate them, the Agile Alliance will fund each recipient’s travel to two different suitable conferences on two different continents. In order to grow the next generation of Agile thought leaders, the Award is given to people who aren’t already routinely invited to conferences, presumably because their reputation is not yet widespread.

We on the committee are less interested in funding great speakers than we are in funding people who have something to say that people need to hear. Or, perhaps better, have something to show that people need to see. Or something they do that people should do with them. We don’t even require that Pask award winners give formal presentations at conferences; it’s enough to mingle.
