What I Do: Fix ROI, One Team at a Time.

I help willing teams and organizations by coaching them through a transformation toward iterative/incremental delivery practices like Scrum so they can build real, working software every two weeks and restore ROI for their business and customers.

Stop me if this sounds familiar: Despite your best efforts and intentions your software projects have become costly adventures that deliver late and with so-so quality. Your teams are stressed from overtime, your customers disappointed and your Return On Investment has left the building.

You're not alone - this is a common problem many teams and organizations face every day.

Overall, the risk exposure on typical software projects has been compared to betting the budget in Vegas - and with similar rates of return. Why? Because traditional software project management methodologies, roles and practices are more suited to building simple products rather than complex software solutions.
