Biography

Andrea Christie is an IT professional with 15 years experience in software delivery.

I started my software career in traditional waterfall projects, and moved through DSDM/RAD methods into a more responsive, end user focused delivery style. Agile is a natural progression for me. I enjoy delivering what the customer really wants, and the journey of discovery that agile allows them to take.

I gained my CSM certification in 2010 and was responsible for early scrum implementation with that employer and for sharing the approach and techniques with other teams.

I've since moved to a consulting role and I am now involved in educating teams starting out with agile and developing the strategy for an organisation as they introduce agile across the business.
