Bob Payne
Senior Vice President at LitheSpeed.
Washington DC


An early adopter of Extreme Programming, Scrum and SAFe, I have worked exclusively as a Lean+Agile Transformation leader since 1999. I host the Agile Toolkit podcast and have produced over 170 podcasts, recording a variety of industry leaders and Agile practitioners. My consulting and training style is build on years of Lean+Agile experience, a MSEE in Computer Architectures for Artificial Intelligence and having grown up working in my family’s restaurant, so you can expect a blend of technical excellence and customer service. Because of my interest in philanthropy, I founded the AgileDC conference, a “For-Benefit” event put on by volunteers from the Agile community. All proceeds from this unique event go to charity. Contact me if you want to get involved with AgileDC; we’d love your help!
