Sam LIpson was looking for challenge in university, so he majored in Computer Engineering. This is where the hardware and software meet. Circuits and firmware made for an interesting undergraduate education. After many years in firmware, drivers, operating systems and networking he was "promoted" to project manager. He was a successful Waterfall project manager for many years, and learned that big bang approaches might not deliver the exact flash of light hoped for. He's been practicing Agile techniques for many years, and ultimately went from dabbling to Agile Leader/ScrumMaster to Agile coach. These days his practice centers on helping teams to reach higher levels of Agile performance, whether local, distributed or outsourced. He has helped ERP teams "knock it out of the park" with Agile Delivery. As of Spring 2016, he joined Agile42.
