Biography

Stephen Beagle is a Technical Project Manager with Cerner Corporation, the leading U.S. supplier of healthcare information technology (HIT) solutions.  In 1997 he accepted a software developer position with Cerner and since has worked in areas such as Patient Care, Computer Physician Order Entry (CPOE), Documentation Management, custom report writing using Discern Explorer (CCL), Automated Testing solution development, Cerner Direct, and Home Health and Hospice.

Stephen became a Technical Project Manager in 2007, and soon after discovered the benefits of Scrum.  Using the Scrum framework, his team was able to develop a new solution that provided value for users within 8 months; whereas his waterfall project plan had projected 12 months until initial use.

Seeing the benefits of Scrum firsthand, Stephen has become an advocate for the framework and has encouraged others within his organization to adopt the practice.  He has also participated in high-level planning to advance agile development practices throughout the company, and teaches Scrum through formal classes and informal coaching.
