Bob Payne

SVP, Agile Training and Coaching

An early adopter of Extreme Programming, Scrum and SAFe, Bob Payne has worked exclusively as a Lean+Agile Transformation leader since 1999.  

Bob Payne hosts the Agile Toolkit podcast and has produced over 170 episodes, recording a variety of industry leaders and Agile practitioners. Bob’s consulting and training style is built on years of Lean+Agile experience, a MSEE in Computer Architectures for Artificial Intelligence and having grown up working in his family’s restaurant, so you can expect a blend of technical excellence and customer service.


Because of Bob’s interest in philanthropy, he founded the AgileDC conference, a “For-Benefit” event put on by volunteers from the Agile community. All proceeds from this unique event go to charity. Contact Bob if you want to get involved with AgileDC; he’d love your help!
