Paul Nelson began his career in 1986 as a software developer, writing programs in WANG BASIC on a Wang Minicomputer. He has always been passionate about the craft of software development and, in the past several years, has been an advocate for Agile principles and practices as an independent consultant. Paul coaches and mentors software development teams seeking to transition to an Agile approach or seeking to take their Agile practices to the next level.
Paul has worked with many organizations, large and small, from coaching individual teams to coordinating corporation-wide Agile transformations. He is equally comfortable in front of a class teaching Test-Driven Development as he is in front of a CIO providing guidance in applying Agile concepts across the organization. Paul works effectively with both corporate IT and the business side of companies including PMO's, Product Marketing, Product Management and Project Management.
