I'm Ready to Jump in and Help

  • Quick Start

    I have been consulting with large technology companies for over 30 years. I know the right questions to ask and where to provide value quickly.

  • Flexible Approach

    From Waterfall to Scrum, PMI to CMMI, I’m not preaching any one approach other than “Ship it!”

  • Clear Communication

    I pride myself on keeping you informed in plain English: Reliable estimates, honest status, and bold recommendations.

  • On Site Support

    I don’t mind getting on a plane, train, or in an automobile to be with you and your teams. I want to be part of your team, by your side, providing real-time feedback and coaching.

Haven't You Waited Long Enough To Transform Your Teams?

More than Just Delivery

Here are some areas where I can help:
  • Team assessments, including job alignment to needs and staffing models
  • Organize and facilitate team Kickoff and Inception workshops
  • One-on-One coaching with key team leads and managers
  • Develop Scrum of Scrum process and format to track team cross-dependencies and risks

Let Me Help Your Teams in Four Key Areas

Inception

I teach a highly-facilitated, game-based approach to developing new product and initiative concepts.

Agile UX & CX

I specialize in integrating the creative process into the Agile process. My Initiation Process gives creative folks time to think, dream, and design.

Planning

I facilitate a simple Story Mapping approach to release planning, involving you and your whole team.

Customer POV

I help the team look at release planning from your user's priorities. I want your team to understand the story of how your customers use your products, then plan from there.

Delivery

I will help your department organize into small, product-focused teams that work in 2 to 3-week sprints.

Flexibility

Agile appreciates changing scope, but not whims. I will help your teams set up a lightweight process to test ideas with your teams so keep teams focused on customer needs.

Feedback

Analytics professionals become part of the teams, helping everyone understand the results.

Fact Based

Bright ideas only work if the customer finds them valuable. Unfortunately, analytics data is often not clear to all. I will help your data professionals provide useful information to the teams.
