Credentials

Biography

I am an experienced Agile practitioner focusing on Agile software delivery through the process of optimizing, evolving, and capitalizing on the interactions between customers, businesses, and technologies.  Over the course of my career, I have held several roles within agile and non-agile organizations.

Roles have included:

  • Scrum Master
  • Chief Scrum Master
  • Agile Coach

Having had the pleasure, and at some points of pain, of utilizing multiple methodologies, I have seen and adopted many techniques that I believe are effective in optimizing agile organizations and transforming non-agile organizations.  I have used my various experiences to constantly inspect and adapt my own processes and techniques when leading scrum teams and agile organizations.  I currently utilize these learning points to pragmatically guide organizations through agile coaching and training.

Background includes:

  • Systems Building/Thinking, Agile Leadership, Large-scale Agile Transformations, Management Consulting
  • Project/Program/Portfolio Management, Product Management
  • Business Analysis, Feature Decomposition, Story Mapping
  • Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Lean
  • Government Regulatory, Compliance, Vendor Management, Consulting
