I’ve been involved with software development for my whole working career. I’ve been a tester, developer, project manager, program manager, implementation manager, project office manager, scrum master, product owner, scrumc coach, and software development manger. I’ve used RUP, V-Model, XP, Scrum, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-and-pretend-its-a-process. I’ve got just about all the project management credentials you can get: PMP, Prince 2 Practitioner, Certified Scrum Master, Certified Scrum Product Owner and Certified Scrum Professional.
All of this has lead me to where I am today. I’m passionate about building good software, and using agile methods to do so. I think motivated individuals with the right skills and experience are what we need to succeed. I work for Growing Agile as an agile mentor and trainer trying to help those individuals who will in turn transform their organisations. At the same time myself and my partner, Sam Laing, manage our business according to the agile values that we live and breathe.
