I'm not sure if this is what you are after, but one way is to use custom
agenda commands and then to save the agenda as a txt file:

The following pages have good information on creating block agenda with
custom commands:



--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'org-agenda-custom-commands 
             '("D" "Delegated tasks" 
               ((tags-todo "Jenny")
                (tags-todo "Archie")
                (tags-todo "George"))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Once you create a custom agenda command, you can simply save it as txt
by typing C-x C-w and the filename + relevant extension.

Another option is to use a babel block and org-map-entries to spit out a
simple list of tasks for each person:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+source: tasklist
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :var person="me"
  (let (tasklist)
     (lambda ()
       (add-to-list 'tasklist 
                    (concat "- " (nth 4 (org-heading-components)))))
     (concat person "/!TODO") 'agenda)
    (mapconcat 'identity tasklist "\n"))

#+call: tasklist(person="Jenny")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Add this to an org file, replace Jenny with the appropriate name, and
type C-c C-c to spit out a list (of all TODO items tagged with the
relevant name) that looks like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+results: tasklist(person="Jenny")
- Call George
- Call Archie
- Estimate cost of widgets
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

You could do something similar with dynamic block function.
