Roland Cuellar (‘kway-are’) has focused exclusively on agile software development and lean business process improvement for the last 12 years. During that time, I have worked with Capital One, CNBC, Westinghouse Nuclear Power, Nationwide Insurance, US Citizenship and Immigration, the US Courts, and many many other clients on enterprise agile adoption. I have also worked with a number of start-ups and early-stage ventures to help accelerate delivery. I have spoken at numerous conferences and have published a number of articles on the subjects of agile, portfolio management, quality, and kanban. I have a BS in Computer Science from the University of Houston and an MBA from UCLA.
I have a strong belief and affinity for lean methods and I believe that with willing and open-minded management and team members, we can always discover better ways to deliver.
I am a Certified ScrumMaster, Certified Scrum Product Owner, Lean-Six-Sigma Green Belt, and SAFe Program Consultant (SPC). I also hold a BS in Computer Science and MBA.
