William Bourne
Principal at SourceForm Consulting Inc..
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada


Bill Bourne is a  Senior Software Development Manager, Project Manager, S/W Development Best Practices expert, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and coach with 35 years of industry experience in a wide variety of projects and roles. 

I love to help with the inception of new software projects and teams ... getting them started on the right track. I'm also known for my ability to take on poorly performing software development teams and turning them around through coaching, tuning the organization structure, and establishing effective project management and software development practices.

I am a builder and leader of software development organizations, known for successfully managing large complex programs of over 400 staff as well as small agile projects. I've worked extensively as a change agent in software technology, processes and practices, and driving new product proposals.

I can champion process, organizational and cultural change across a single group or multiple teams. 

While I've not written code professionally in a long time, I love technology and feel it is critical to my success to stay current and have a good understanding of the languages, programming idioms, frameworks, and tools that are being used by the teams that I manage or consult to. Sustainable improvement has to be built from the bottom up, and a good understanding of the development team's environment and challenges is critical to making change happen.
