Chief Innovation Officer @ blackswanfarming.com
location_on New Zealand
With a background in fluid mechanics and systems engineering, Joshua has worked for the past decade with various organisations to improve their systems of innovation and software delivery. In particular, he has focused on the problem of prioritisation and portfolio management, helping to bring the fuzzy-front-end of development into focus and aligned toward faster time-to-market and improved return on investment.
Joshua recently co-authored an IEEE paper called “Black Swan Farming” on the use of Cost of Delay across a $100m p.a. portfolio at a Fortune 500 company. He shares some thoughts on innovation and tilting the playing field at blackswanfarming.com
Joshua has had the privilege of speaking at LESS2012, Agile2013, XPDay, LKNA14, Agile2014 and other international conferences, sharing his experience and thoughts about how to discover, nurture and speed up the delivery of value.
Joshua is based in London but works with people and teams all over the globe, but still hasn't managed to shake his native New Zealand accent. He is most happy when he is wearing a rubber suit, riding a moving wall of water.
