I believe in a pragmatic approach, blending the best of agile and conventional techniques to suit the skills, context and challenges of an organisation.  I recognise that selecting the right method is only part of the challenge.  People are the real catalysts, their attitudes will determine how successful any initiative is, this is why clients value my emphasis on group and one to one coaching.

I have spent the majority of my career as a permanent employee in respected product development organisations. As a result, I fully understand the importance of creating sustainable change and minimising dependency on external resources.  It is not only about going fast – I recognise that pace of change varies between individuals and organisations.  I’m sensitive to the need to maintain, or improve, employee engagement whilst driving the business forward.
