I have worked as a Scrum Master, Agile Coach, Project and Program Manager and Middle Manager in the last 20+ years helping companies developing software on anything from old legacy systems stuffed with technical debt to new eBanking modules and check-in apps.

I am Certified Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner and Professional Scrum Master, examined Prince2 Practitioner and certified in ISTQB Test Foundation. I am Trainer in Direct Leadership and certified in Management 30 Agile Management and Radical Collaboration – and some years ago I even managed projects under CMMI.

I have run a number of waterfall projects based on requirements, I knew would change considerably during the project. I have more than once knowingly presented fictitious plans and budgets to steering committees feeding into their illusion of control. I have generally underestimated the complexity involved in the projects trying to reduce it rather than embrace it. More often than not I was under orders i.e. if I wanted to be able to pay my rent and clothe my kids …

Hence I have been responsible of spending too much time and money on command and control, demotivating project teams and disappointing far too many end users and strangely enough satisfied many a steering committee.

To put it short I have turned my eyes on Agile Transformations with Scrum, Radical Collaboration and Direct Leadership and I won’t turn back.
