Biography

Carol Kollm

I started my career working for the Department of Defense, both as a civilian in the Air Force and as a government contractor, working on advancing laser radar systems. I transitioned to web site development and web applications in 1995, when I co-founded a web development company serving healthcare organizations and law firms. It was during my masters program while studying software engineering processes that I was first introduced to agile methodologies.

I have enjoyed working as a Coach, Scrum Master, Product Owner with teams in the US, Germany, and India- for large enterprises, small and medium startups. I cultivate and reinforce Agile values and team empowerment. Building trust between teams and across the organization is the key to extraordinary results. My product management, engineering, and coaching experience enable me to effectively coach across the enterprise at all levels.

I hold an M.S. in Computer Science from Boston University, a BS in Computer Engineering from Ohio State University, and certifications in Product Management, Advanced Agile, Coaching, and Scaling Agile.
