I come from a development background (Java/.NET) with over 20 years experience in the field and having held many job titles in that time.
I understand the world of IT and the personalities within IT! I also understand the world of business! I'm happy to work with developers, PM's and stake-holders to reach win win solutions... And yes compromises! but always through transparency and collaboration.
I started my career working in a software house coding in COBOL before quickly moving into the recently formed Java team and helped shape the company's flagship product which went on to be successfully sold today to many tier 1 retailers including Marks & Spencers, Waitrose, DSG and John Lewis.
I later switched to a smaller setup and switched technology to Microsoft's .NET framework - performing more of an architect role and coach role introducing many XP practices.
Fast forward a number of years – I'd ran a number of departments and been involved in several agile transformations... Some more successful than others!
I aim to offer custom bespoke courses aimed to help you and your organisation achieve your goals.
We offer Scrum and Kanban training, advice on scaling, consultancy services in addition to SAFe training (Leading SAFe, SAFe Scrum Master, SAFe Advanced Scrum Master, SAFe Product Owner and SAFe for teams)
"Ideal world Agile" doesn't easily translate from the class room to the real world! I spend the majority of my time working with real business with real problems - not in a class room!
