Over 20 years of multi-disciplined IT experience. Experienced delivering product solutions and managing change in complex environments for large, leading companies, including highly matrixed environments. Exceptional accomplishments implementing strategies, handling financial responsibilities in excess of $300 MM/annually, and managing vendors and onshore / offshore teams. Known for being fiscally responsible and delivering complex products on-time.
Over the years, I have had numerous opportunities, too many to count, to direct programs using Agile methods. In several of the roles, I was able to use what I consider to be "just the right amount of Agile" because the use of Agile within the organization was limited and very immature. And, I do find the most challenging organizations when it comes to successful adoption of Agile are those that are highly leveraged. I have found that cohesiveness and collaboration among team members are critical and the leveraged model does not support either of those aspects effectively.
Programs that I have overseen have ranged from very small, a few million dollars a year, to very large, several million dollars over several years and across multiple industries.
