I’ve enjoyed leading and mentoring teams and individuals for over thirty years, and I have been leading successful agile transformations in software companies and IT departments since 2014.
In addition to being a JIRA whiz, I am well-traveled, educated in the classics, and speak four languages with varying degrees of grace and confidence. I spent several years developing an esoteric mathematical model of how grassfires spread, I analyze data for fun, and my greatest joy is in helping people and teams be the best version of themselves that they can imagine.
My approach as an Agile consultant is to prioritize creating a healthy team while putting in place the most basic, out-of-the-box Agile framework that makes sense for the goals of the organization. I embrace the power of metrics and data visualization to provide the transparency that Agility requires, while maintaining the trust and compassion that are needed to guide teams through the difficult, data-based conversations that will result in lasting, positive change.
