I want to help build beautiful businesses, that care about planet and people as well as profit; humane workplaces fit for the 21st century, where everyone has a stake in the outcome and an opportunity to contribute to direction.
Throughout the last 33 years, I have worked with some great people and had opportunities to grow in a range of roles across many industries. I have had some success and lots of fun using lean and agile practices for over 20 years.
In my MBA research paper, 'The Paradox of Agile Transformation', I realised why I was so tired of seeing attempts at improving organisational agility undermined by the wrong approach, and have become more focused on how to better align the approaches we take.
Contributing back to the community is also important: I have worked with the Agile Alliance and IIBA in NZ and in the UK. I love writing too: 'Scrum an ideal framework for agile projects' (2017), 'Agile Project Management 2nd edition' (2015), many wikipedia pages, and the occasional Quora answers.
