Michele Sliger is the co-author of The Software Project Manager’s Bridge to Agility. She has extensive experience in agile software development, having transitioned to Scrum and XP practices in 2000 after starting her career following the traditional waterfall approach. A self-described “bridge builder,” her passion lies in helping those in traditional software development environments cross the bridge to agility. In keeping with this vision, she helped to establish the Project Management Institute’s Agile Community of Practice, was a member of the PMI Steering Committee for the creation of the PMI-ACP credential, and was a member of the board of directors of the Scrum Alliance.

Sliger is the owner of Sliger Consulting Inc., where she consults with businesses ranging from small start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, helping teams with their agile adoption, and helping organizations prepare for the changes that agile adoption brings. A frequent conference speaker and one of the Scrum Alliance's Spotlight bloggers, Sliger is a strong advocate of agile principles and value-driven development practices.

She is certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®) and a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST). A former adjunct graduate professor at the University of Colorado, Sliger holds an undergraduate MIS degree from the University of South Florida and an MBA. When not working, she volunteers as a teen mentor in the Humane Education program at the Denver Dumb Friends League, an animal shelter founded in 1910.
