Biography

Jason's 25+ years of People, Product, Project, Process, design and development experience has helped companies deliver 100's of successful projects, great products, lean processes, and happy campers

Jason started in back office software development systems in the late 80's. Most of that time was spent as a Project Implementation Manager where he set up bank customers; Chicago Board of Trade and Chicago Mercantile Exchange full suite of electronic payment systems from their place of business. This experience gave him the deep understanding that delivering good quality code, efficient processes, and reliable customer service was a going in expectation that gets you in the front door, the key to success and secret sauce differential at that time was really understanding your customers goals & users needs.  

In the 2000's Jason worked in almost every role of systems at the 1st. and 2nd largest insurance companies in the United States. His pursuit to ease the pain of traditional project management shortcomings and waterfall product management opportunities moved him closer to the business, requirements, and Agile space where he felt that understanding the customer perspective and adopting a new product development framework were two of the biggest game changers. 

While working at the largest professional services company in the world he continued his journey as an enterprise Agile coach and trainer who always enjoyed being first through the wall of organizational change with a smile on his face and arrows in his back.  

Jason continues to evangelize the inclusion of Agile development, strong product design and user experience in every engagement he is a part of.  Jason also understands that today these factors barely get you in your customers front door, to stay competitive in this era of fast paced technology innovation high performing teams must always be refactoring the product experience with disruptive cool technology to achieve brand loyalty, rapid customer feedback and stay relevant while staying ahead of the competition

Personally, Jason is dedicated to the values of constant and never - ending improvement.. Thank You Tony
