Specialises In

I am the creator of Auspicious Agile (www.auspiciousagile.com). I have founded Agile services practices for Rally Software in Asia and for Point B, a mid-sized US management consultancy. I have nearly two decades of project leadership and process improvement experience in technology related projects, and over eight years of experience using Agile methods. I have led corporate Agile training, executive education, and Agile certification sessions publicly and in corporations across multiple industries.

I am a frequent speaker at Agile and industry conferences, and an InfoQ contributor on DevOps. InfoQ covered my recent talk on Agile Scaling methods given at Agile Tour Bangkok. I have proven success in numerous roles as an Agile leader and coach. I have consulted in the telecommunications, entertainment, real estate, information services, financial services and professional services industries for numerous Fortune 500 companies including Disney and Accenture. I have experience with start-ups, entrepreneurial ventures and working with US government clients.

I have a passion for using Agile and Lean principles to create business value and competitive advantage for companies. However, my greatest excitement is through the coaching and development of team members on their Agile journey, enabling them to initiate and sustain their own improvements and culture change. My key success factor is using a servant leadership approach and "respect for every individual" to empower teams.
