About me

As the founder of Disruptive Agile, I am very passionate about Agile and Scrum project management improvements. I have a background in Web Development and Graphic Design and spent many years in project management implementing waterfall practices before discovering the benefits of Agile. I enjoy helping businesses get Agile on all levels, individual, team, and enterprise while helping teams adopt Agile, Scrum, Kanban and Lean practices. I specialize in analyzing my clients process improvement needs, training and coaching Agile teams and served as master coach for Agile transformations.

I believe that Agile is more than an alternate project management methodology. Agile is a very powerful project management tool when implemented correctly. With Agile, organizations can achieve product quality, higher customer satisfaction, improved team morale, increased collaboration and ownership, customized team structures, more relevant metrics, improved performance visibility, increased development control, improved release predictability, and reduced risk.
