Why did you want to join up to the Agile Auckland group?

I have a passion for coaching teams and being involved at all layers of the Agile revolution, once in SW development, but now in a legal practice experiencing Scrum-like teams self organising and practicing limiting their WIP to GTJD!

What areas of Agile do you work / participate or are interested in?

I have been a ScrumMaster over several Scrum teams and once headed up all things Scrum at one of NZs largest Insurers working with over 10 Scrum teams progressing through an active and dynamic project portfolio consisting legacy through to cutting edge web projects. I love having a great bunch of "agile" people around me I am looking at more ways to work Agile into industry outside of software development.

What has impacted you most when you think about Agile software development?

Building software is great (and its one of the most influential things happening on earth today), it’s even greater with a great team. I think the thing that has influenced me most are the Agile Manifesto principles which came about by looking at what worked best in teams and I enjoy applying that in day to day work, be it software or other business systems where 'being agile' always helps.


I have been passionate about building great software ever since I started working in software development over 10 years ago. Then not so long ago I found Agile and began my journey. I am a ScrumMaster and aspiring Agile Coach, so the journey goes on.

What Stephen R. is saying about this Meetup Group

I loved the group questions and answers at Kane Mar's talk and see the group meeting the need of each other in our journey to becoming more Agile to benefit those we work with.
