Andy is a highly experienced Professional Scrum Trainer with Scrum.org and a Professional Kanban Trainer with Pro Kanban. He wrote the book "Applying Scrum with Kanban"... so he knows a few things or two.
Andy's career has taken him on a journey from late 90’s web development through professional organisations such as Nokia and IBM to now, where Andy is a professional trainer, coach and consultant. Along the way Andy learned XP, Scrum and Kanban ‘hands-on’, through leading teams of people developing complicated solutions in complex product and service delivery environments.
Andy now works with teams of people at every level to help them work smarter towards achieving their goals. Whether that's through professional personal and group coaching; or coaching Kanban with Professional Scrum, it's always based upon client and customer outcomes in mind.
Andy also has a family with two little boys and a dog called Rocky in Bristol, as you can well imagine, that keeps him pretty busy one way or another.
