For over 25 years, Mr. Dave Witkin has consulted to and provided training for large commercial and U.S. Government clients on large-scale Agile and traditional (i.e., waterfall) programs. Mr. Witkin is passionate about bringing the benefits of Agile to large (over $2B), high-risk Federal Government programs, which have been his focus for the last 20 years. He is currently the managing partner for Packaged Agile, a firm focused on effective Agile transformations for the U.S. Government. A recovering PMI Project Management Professional (PMP), he is one of less than 100 people in the world qualified to teach Scrum@Scale. He currently holds certifications including SAFe Program Consultant (SPC), SAFe Scrum Master (SSM), SAFe for Government Practitioner (SGP), Certified Scrum Master (CSM), and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO). His favorite quote, "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth," is attributed to the underappreciated scholar, Mike Tyson.
