Biography

Mike Woods

Grew up professionally in Big 5 Consulting with Ernst & Young's Management Consulting Group.  Learned structured application development methods and applied them in very large projects (200-300 consultants) with Fortune 100 companies.  Joined a start up company that built digital asset management systems and provided program management for their implementations at client sites.  Went independent and am a contract project manager.

Realized that traditional engineering-based approaches to software development were not achieving the quality or delivering fast enough to satisfy the needs of the business, so began a quest for better ways of running projects.  Found Agile / Scrum / XP --- and am working with the concepts that they bring. 

Am very interested in comparing results with others.
