Raytheon, Agile Coach
January 2012 - Present, Aurora, CO, United States
I am currently serving on the Raytheon-IIS SW Disipline Council, and as the IIS-Rocky Mountain Engineering POC for agile/lean process deployment within the business unit. I support new business proposals and incorporate the use of agile software development into the proposals, mentor teams transitioning to agile/scrum methodologies, help programs with more traditional sw development methodologies to incorporate agile principles and practices into their software development process (e.g., continuous builds, continuous integration). I'm working with the Raytheon corporate and IIS business unit leadership to restructure corporate and business unit measures to support agile/scrum development activities.
