I am currently an Agile Delivery Lead serving US Federal clients with coaching, transformations and architecting solutions. After 10 years of waterfall software delivery, I started with Scrum in 2005 as a Product Owner Proxy on some US Air Force Research and Development projects. I contributed to software process definitions for my company’s intellectual property and what eventually grew to a Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 4 practice. Along the way, I found a niche in client-facing roles translating operational requirements to Product Owners for multiple teams. As I learned more depth on the delivery lifecycle, I transitioned from requirements to Program Management where I oversaw up to 6 Scrum teams delight DoD clients. I’ve been an Agile Subject Matter Expert (SME) on several successful programs articulating the proper balance between Scum delivery teams at the project and portfolio levels within a Waterfall Acquisition enterprise. I enjoy Public Service projects with a real mission where Scrum delivers tremendous value and makes a real difference to our citizens.
