Top 10 Agile Thought Leaders You Should Follow in 2022

Top 10 Agile Thought Leaders and Influencers to Follow on Twitter: Update for 2022

TOP 10 AGILE THOUGHT LEADERS AND INFLUENCERS TO FOLLOW ON TWITTER IN 2022 - EXC - LR - SQ

If you're involved or interested in agile, this article lists top agile thought leaders and influencers you may want to follow on Twitter.

We started with over 300 experts with Twitter accounts and progressively refined it down to the top 10. We're transparent about the criteria and calculations for making this list, so here's how we did it. To qualify, Twitter accounts were required to meet all of the following six characteristics:

  • Account is for a person or a professional association,
  • Account is 3 or more years old,
  • Account is active (defined as 1 or more tweets in the last 30 days),
  • 1,000 or more tweets,
  • 7,000 or more followers, and
  • 90% or more of tweets have engagement (e.g., likes and retweets).

The accounts meeting the above qualifications were ranked ordered and weighted on three factors:

  • Number of followers (weighted at 1x),
  • Number of tweets in the last 30 days (weighted at 1x), and
  • Percent of tweets with engagement (because this reflects the effectiveness of tweets, and to what degree they are connecting with followers, it was weighted higher—at 3x).

The top 10 accounts based on the criteria and calculations follow.

Notes: The data source is Twitter, and the data was collected on December 9, 2021. Disclosure: Scott M. Graffius is the CEO of Exceptional PPM and PMO Solutions™. Source of screen shot images: Respective Twitter accounts. Names, marks, and images are the property of their respective owners.
