Work experience, Development Manager
May 2013 - Present, Birmingham, United Kingdom

This position requires that I manage the team and development lifecycle in an "Agile" way which leads to fast, high quality, collaboratively-generated product delivery.

This is completed by deploying appropriate development methods including fast, flexible, modular development (e.g. Scrum) as well as structured development (e.g. Waterfall) aligned with the nature of the projects, the level of complexity involved and the variety and stability of the business requirements.

Pinewood Technologies PLC, Scrum Master
April 2009 - May 2013, Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom

I am currently the Team Leader and Scrum Master for two highly experienced and productive development teams. One dealing in CRM Software and other in Stock Management, Accounts and Management Dashboarding. Along with the other Pinewood Scrum Masters, I have initiated the Pinewood "Scrumish to Scrum" Project. This aims to firstly purify our Scrum approach and then to encourage continuous departmental improvement rather than simply isolated team improvement.
