Casey Family Programs, Program Manager
July 2012 - June 2014, Seattle, WA, US
I organized a program of 17 different projects to transform Casey Family Programs direct services for children and families. Casey needed to improve their services so that children who have been separated from their homes due to neglect or abuse were returned to a permanent home faster. We used scrum to re-design and improve all business processes from client intake, service delivery, and follow up, and creating a new case management system. I organized the program, provided training to senior executives, coached team members on the use of scrum, trained product owners, and served as scrum master to teams.
