Agile Leadership - Observe, Orient, Decide, Act
When I was developing Smalltalk applications back in the mid-1990's, I used the spiral model to iterate through the requirements, get results quickly and minimize the risk. Ten years later, working as a project manager, I was using agile principles to configure a PPM solution to deliver the project before the contract milestone(s), reduce costs and collect a nice bonus for our effort.
Since 2010, I have focused exclusively on Agile Leadership practices including Scrum, Kanban, Lean as well as how to scale agile practices via SAFe. I have served/lead the teams as the Scrum Master and Agile Coach.
How I can Help
I have worked with several teams with a diverse nationalities, with local and remote resources which were both senior level developers and newly educated engineers.
I am driven to help individuals reach their potential and for teams to become high-performing by delivering tangible results. I take a pragmatic approach to decision making, use situational leadership and adopt a coaching mentality.
"... jeg har fået en meget kompetent og pragmatisk men samtidig også empatisk sparring/coaching... Der er en fantastisk ro over Jim (han selv er ikke mundlam), og han formår at lytte intenst til én og afbryde, hvis snakken begynder at miste retning. Han passer på mennesker, han møder, så de får det bedste ud af sig selv. Jeg vil til enhver tid anbefale Jim som coachende scrum master."
