Personal Profile

New York United States

I am agile practice leader and transformation agent.  I proudly carry the credential of Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), something that makes me a part of a very unique wordlwide community of less than 80 (I reside  in NY State).

My primary focus is on helping organizations and teams with adopting agile culture, improving tools, techniques and processes in development.  My focus is also on organizational and cultural improvements, mid-level management and team-level coaching and training.   My coaching style combines training, mentoring and leading by example.  Currently, I help one of the largest global invstment banks with enterprise-wide (global), multi-team, agile transformation efforts.

I am an active member of NYC agile community where I am known as a big proponent of community-wide, cost effective agile education. I attempt delivering such education "to crowds" via my personal presentations, organizing open-space agile collaboration workshops, group meetings and other community activities. I strongly emphasize the importance and abide to 'ethics of agile coaching’.
