Certified Professional Scrum Master with over 15 years of experience working in software development across various industries, currently managing Agile Release Train of a large Operations Unit at NBN Co, and coaching the teams.
I am well versed in and have appreciation for the picture-perfect theory of Agile Methodologies, but specialize in real-world implementations of Agile/Scrum/Lean elements and fully fledged practices, that often differ from what you learn on paper and in the classrooms. I'm a pragmatic professional "from the trenches" who knows what works, and what doesn't, and how to achieve the desired result - be it in delivering Digital Product to market, or coaching someone transitioning to Agile Delivery from another Industry.
I value and promote the right attitude in team members; collaboration, transparency, and efficient communication between different layers of stakeholders. I'm energetic, experienced professional who leads from the front, and doesn't sit back.
Practical implementation of Scrum, XP, and Kanban in environments of various sizes and maturity in adoption of Agile process and delivery methods.
Introduction of Agile usually requires a lot of change to the way teams work, Program support necessary, and stakeholder expectations. I'm comfortable with running coaching workshops, and having 1:1 sessions when required.
Having worked as Agile BA, I'm competent in full range of Business Analysis artifacts and processes, including Elaboration sessions, Backlog grooming, and writing User Stories.
Outsourcing goes against recommended principles of Agile frameworks, e.g. co-location of team members. It is reality we face however, and I'm comfortable with practical methods that make such collaboration slightly easier.
I have strong Web & Mobile development background; launched multiple iOS and Web projects of my own over the years. It helps me understand developers better and get acceptance as integral part of delivery teams.
The easiest way to contact me is to connect to me on LinkedIn, as I don't use Twitter much these days.
