Member since 3 years
Allen has over 30 years experience in Software Development from his early programming days to numerous project leadership and project managementship positions. He has a knack for taking on troubled projects and getting them to "done". This lead to taking on opportunities in new and leading edge technologies and processes as well.
in 2009 as a Software Project Manager for NAVTEQ (now HERE, a Nokia business) Allen took the initiative to try Scrum on a twice-failed project. Nine two-week Sprints later, a major piece of business value was delivered and this unoffical pilot eventually led to the full Agile transformation at NAVTEQ.
Allen hs been a member of the Agile Working Group at HERE since its formation in 2010 and is currently it's Product Owner.
