Graduating from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in Operations Management, I studied Lean, Kanban and Agile techniques as they applied to the manufacturing industry. After graduating from college, I knew that my calling was in the technology field, but at the time, I didn’t know where I could apply my studies to my career.
After working in various roles on software development teams, in 2001 I had the chance to work hand-in-hand with the co-founder of Scrum, Ken Schwaber. It was at this time that everything I had learned in college came full circle and I was able to see how Lean, Kanban and Agile methods could be applied to building a software product.
Combining my Operations background with Project Management and Agile methods, I have been able to train and coach companies to deliver value to their stakeholders while eliminating wastes.
