PROFILE

SUMMARY

What inspires me is guiding software engineering teams to deliver value on a regular cadence. With deep understanding of Agile methodologies and many years of coaching experience, I start with a lightweight framework to provide a foundation as teams learn to build and release software at the end of each iteration. As teams become more confident and self-managed, we use retrospectives at the end of each iteration to streamline process mechanics, optimize efficiency, reduce work in progress (inventory) and use team velocity metrics to increase forecast accuracy. I have over 20 years of technology experience -- starting as a developer for both business and scientific applications -- and am both PMI and CSM certified.
