List of Lean or Agile Community Groups

Here is a list of both Google and Yahoo groups that have some focus on Lean and/or Agile Development. You will need to sign up with Google and Yahoo to join these groups. Most of these groups are very active and you will find it's a good resource for both newbies as well as seasoned agilists. Enjoy!

Google Groups:
Agile Tangents (http://groups.google.com/group/agile-tangents) - Good overall discussions around all things Agile

Yahoo Groups:
Agile Project Management (http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/agileprojectmanagement/) - Focus on the management side of Agile projects

Test Driven Development (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/testdrivendevelopment/) - Everything you want to understand about this practice also known as TDD

Scrum Development (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrumdevelopment/) - Emphasis on just Scrum brought to you by the Scrum Alliance

Lean Development (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/leandevelopment/) - Focus on the content of the Lean Development books by the Poppendieck's

LeanAgileScrum (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/leanagilescrum/) - A newer group started by Alan Shalloway from Net Objectives. Brings together Lean, Agile and Scrum discussions in one place and talks about how they work together.
