My Experience and Credentials
I have over 20 years in the technology industry, over 15 of those leading teams in a variety of positions all the way from Software Developer to Technical Project Manager, Agile Program Manager, Agile Coach, and Consultant.
Along the way I’ve helped companies big and small to deliver software and technology solutions across a variety of industries: finance, media, healthcare, banking, and even a successful startup that is now public.
These experiences from the trenches of real technology work allows me to dispense with all the nonsense around dogmatic agile approaches, and instead deliver real solutions that work for small, medium or large companies. Certification wise I hold certifications from Scrum, Scaled Agile and Kanban. Being a Scrum CSM, SAFe SPC and Kanban Trainer with years the experience on all of them. Here’s my resume on Linkedin.
How can I help you?
1. Pragmatic, Effective Agile Transformation
– Business Agile Transformation. Taking the impact of Agile beyond IT to marketing, finance, HR and even the C-level executives. Or making Agile work in the heart of your technology area. Whether it’s Scrum, Kanban or SAFe we are experts who deliver a custom agile transformation for you.
– Agile 911. Meaning re-launching, or re-booting failed or struggling Agile initiatives. We work with management, and your teams to create a unique blend that will bring the key benefits of agile for your organization.
– Beyond Scrum or SAFe. Sometimes, the organization does not fit the recipe that Scrum or SAFe ask from you. We have a unique approach that brings the key benefits from agility with much less meetings, and useless complexity. We call it KAFFE, and is in essence a custom Kanban way that is build to fit any organization.
2. Lean Agile Training & Coaching
I have over 15 years doing agile, teaching it, making it work, adapting it, and making it fun. Our training reflects this vast experience.
For this reason I can deliver training for Scrum, Kanban and SAFe. Just let me know, we can deliver live in-person training for Corporate teams or even remotely for busy executives who want to level up their knowledge.
We can also schedule Workshops to find your best fit for An Agile Transformation, or any other topic you may need for technical coaching. Just ask.
3. DevOps & Technology Strategy / CTO Support
Having worked in IT for over two decades now, from developer, to software developer manager, IT project manager, and Agile Coach I have worn almost all the hats; for this reason I am sure I can help your organization plan, and execute a successful roadmap through the jungle of choices for Agile at Scale, Cloud (AWS, Azure, Google, Heroku), Microservices, Functional Programming, and practical uses for Machine Learning, and Blockchain.
What else can we do? Basically almost anything at the strategy level for technology areas, or to support your CTO / CIO from research, to road maps, to executing any initiative.
4. Project Management Services for Technology Initiatives
What do you want to build today? Whether is a new mobile app, a SAAS product on the web, a brand new corporate website, we can help. I have years leading and deploying a variety of mission critical apps to the cloud or your own data center using the most effective agile toolset available: in person or remote.
5. Public Speaking
Finally I do enjoy public speaking, and have deep knowledge on a variety of topics from agility, to innovation, and software engineering tools. Let me know if you are looking for a speaker to deliver a presentation for your next event.
