Scaled Agile teams often struggle to remain Agile. This talk explores some approaches to keeping processes light and practices that will help ensure rapid feedback cycles across multiple teams building larger integrated software systems or products.
Colin is an experienced technical and commercial leader with over 20 years in the IT industry, including the development of many high profile multichannel ecommerce systems. He is passionate about improving software delivery right across the lifecycle, from business idea through to production quality code. This passion has driven him to be an active member of the Agile movement since 2004, helping teams of all sizes adopt Agile techniques to dramatically improve their performance. As Conchango's CTO and later Global Head of Agile for EMC's consulting division, he was responsible for Agile consulting services and tools, including Conchango's Scrum for Team System.
As an active member of the Agile community Colin has built close associations with other thought leaders and contributed new thinking in areas such as scaling Agile techniques to support large programmes.
"When the Agile movement was starting, Colin was there. He understood what it meant. He understood how to help others with it. Then he did something few others did. He put in the hard work to make it within the reach of everyone. We all owe Colin a debt of gratitude." (Ken Schwaber, co-founder of Scrum.)
