I am passionate about helping my clients create more business value, by delivering incrementally, and continuously improving, through the use of Scrum.I leverage all of my extensive client experience, in order to continuously improve as an Agile Coach. I also leverage Scrum Alliance to keep updated on the latest in Scrum. I hope to publish a white paper soon, with increased business value that my clients have realized, while leveraging Scrum. I even talk about Agile all the time in my personal life, especially to my wife. We even implemented it while planning our home renovation projects, which was a great success. I am thrilled to have found a subject matter in Scrum that can help people add more value, while maintaining a work life balance.
