Articles I've written

Maria Montessori + Agile Thinking = Scrum
Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child's natural psychological development, as well as technological advancements in society. The overview . . . gives us a clear sense of the overlap between Montessori education and Scrum.

Waterfall Inside a Sprint
Our team encountered two serious problems and learned from our mistakes with them. We were biased with a Waterfall model -- the only model that we knew how to use to manage and run a software project. . . .

Coaching Agile Teams
Coaching can be as much learning as teaching. Over time I've discovered specific types of team members who need specific types of coaching, as well as how to use my experiences to help the team.
