Rich is a Professional Scrum Trainer and Steward with Scrum.org and a licensed Management 3.0 facilitator. The clients he has worked with span a variety of industries including finance, insurance, banking, healthcare, building systems and HVAC, oil and gas, manufacturing, power generation, and space exploration in companies ranging from the Fortune 100 to five person start-ups. Rich is an experienced professional trainer and consultant with a demonstrated history of connecting thousands of people with leaner, agile principles and practices.
A background in Computer Engineering from West Virginia University taught him to think systematically and identify right-sized solutions to the problems he faced. After a decade of software development, Rich saw the challenge of getting people to work openly together towards a common goal was often harder than the technical challenges he was working on. That led him to teaching people what he knew about building products and solving problems iteratively and incrementally.
When he’s not thinking about the complex systems of how people work and build things together, Rich can be found working on projects with his son, playing all manner of video and board games, exploring the world and it’s beer, or enjoying his wife’s laughter.
