Work experience

Insperity, Technical Project Manager / Scrum Master
June 2006 - Present, Humble, Texas, United States
I am currently the Technical Project Manager (official title) / Scrum Master for two teams in the organization. The organization currently has 15 teams each operating within the scrum framework. When I began working for Insperity I was told they were operating in an agilistic mode. They weren't. For the next 3 years I did all within my power to encourage the use of agile practices. I learned the scrum framework, taught it the decision makers and finally received approval to implement scrum within the organization. I have acted s the scrum coach for the organization and I have taught over 150 people within the organization the scrum framework in over 10 training sessions. This training continues on a quarterly basis. The scrum adoption within the organization has spread from the development department group to other departments which I have been acting as scrum coach and providing scrum training.
