I launched Derailleur Consulting upon leaving Microsoft Services Canada in 2010 to help guide customer teams through their transformations toward more agile software development practices with frameworks like Scrum and Kanban, later expanding my specializations to include working with their senior management and leadership to help them learn how their role evolves to make agile make sense.

I now work with leadership teams and their people who want to learn new philosophies and practices for improving their organizations with applied systems thinking based on the teachings of W.E. Deming, Russell Ackoff, Peter Scholtes, Eli Goldratt, Peter Senge, and others.

I am also the founder of #SystemsThinkingTO, a monthly meetup in Toronto dedicated to building a community of organizational systems thinking enthusiasts and practitioners.
