As a leader utilizing Scrum my mission is:
Building developers, IT support, & stakeholders into a trusted and committed network of partners with a common purpose.
This is the focus of my career.
Since 1984 I've worked as a developer, an architect, a team lead, a manager, and now Vice-President of Technology. Although I've tried several practices and processes to improve development, Scrum has made the biggest difference so far. The honesty, the transparent communication, the easily understood roles, the encouragement to inspect & adapt, all these things come together to free up developers and stakeholders both to be their best in the development process.
I've been working with Scrum since the mid-2000's. I got my CSM in 2012 and am looking forward to a CSP and a CSC in 2013.
Please feel free to contact me with interesting subjects or if you have questions with which I can help.
