My name is Lisa Wright and I have been practicing Agile for almost 10 years, however, prior to that followed XP for developing software in a small internet startup. There started my love of creating and testing software in small increments without spending weeks or months defining requirements down to the smallest detail, only to find out they usually weren't the right solution for what the customer wanted and/or needed.
I then went to work for a company called Ultimate Software in 2008 and had the pleasure to work in a completely Agile environment and see it scaled successfully. As I learned and participated in the Scrum activities, my passion grew for the methodology. For me there was no turning back, I couldn't imagine developing software any other way!
Since then, I have become a Certified ScrumMaster, Certified Scrum Professional and am an ICAgile Certified Agile Coach and Agile Team Facilitation. I am a passionate agilist who loves to coach and mentor teams to become self-organizing and highly productive.
