During his time at BCI, he has contributed to the work of helping several organizations and many individuals in their efforts to transform their world of work.

Travis focuses on the deep cultural transformation that is required for successful implementation of Agile frameworks.  To this end, he is a facilitator of collaboration towards shared understanding and unity of purpose—essential cultural characteristics of high-performance teams and organizations.

Some of the organizations where Travis has helped with Agile transformation include:  Myplanet Digital, Bruce Power, Government of Ontario, Aimia, Bank of Montreal, Rexall, RIM (Blackberry), Royal Bank, Nortel and TV Works (Comcast).

Travis has a unique perspective on organizations and communities.

Travis is also a trained community development facilitator, again working with many organizations across the globe as well as locally. Travis started working with agile methods in 2006 when he became a Certified ScrumMaster and has specialized in agile retrospectives, agile as a learning system and working served in the role of ScruMaster for the Berteig Consulting team.
