I work with all levels of the organization to optimize your business to respond to change. I am passionate about moving organizations and people closer to agility.
Organizational Structure – A starting point for optimizing your business for agility. How your people are organized into departments and teams has a significant impact on your ability to respond to change.
Organizational Behavior – Combined with how your people are organized, how they behave and interact with one another is what makes an organization’s structure and culture come to life.
My first experience with Scrum was in 2005. I was part of a global transformation team responsible for software customizations driven by a global consolidation of accounting software. We ran into typical implementation challenges and organizational impediments. The phrase “I wish that I knew what I know now when I was younger” is very relevant to my early experiences on Scrum teams.
Around 2012 I attended an event at which Ken Schwaber spoke. I left my traditional business analyst and project manager roles behind and evolved into an internal change agent kickstarting an agile transformation. I soon realized by stepping into a consulting role I could make a bigger impact across many organizations as an external change agent than an internal change agent.
I’ve taught thousands of people courses on the following topics: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, organizational change, team dynamics. If your organization is new to any of these topics or struggling with organizational change associated with these areas contact me.
