Health Decisions, Head of IT & Agile Coach
October 2008 - January 2010, Durham, North Carolina, United States
I was asked to lead an IT organization in their transition to Agile. I served as Agile Coach to several project managers. Half my time was spent on one large project, HD360. This was a new clinical trial data management system. Traditional estimates were 3-5 years, and the project had failed twice before due to complexities. We delivered 2/3 of the features in 16 months, and the remaining work was deemed unnecessary. The product was successfully delivered in 3 releases. See http://bit.ly/IkK0zK for press coverage. The Scrum framework was followed. I initially recruited a business analyst to play Product Owner and hired an accomplished project manager interested in learning Agile to play ScrumMaster. We spent a couple of sprints preparing the product backlog before a full team was assigned. Each sprint consisted of sprint planning, execution including daily scrums, review, and retrospective. The project was tracked using low-fidelity task boards and burn down charts, plus high-level Gantt charts. My role was formal and informal training plus ongoing coaching.
