About Don
I’ve been a wearer of many hats, from embedded systems development, to web and mobile development. I’ve been part of teams of all shapes and sizes, from waterfall to kanban, and I’ve used my experience to generate my own views on Agile, especially regarding documentation. I’m a certified Agile Coach and newly certified adopter of SAFe for client consultation. I’m always on the lookup for another good book, be it project management or bleeding edge tech, and I hope to give back to CodeCamp as much as I’ve learned.

Speaking Sessions

  • What to expect from your Agile Coach, and what they should expect from you

    3:30 PM Sunday   Room: Fireside C
    Agile is becoming ever more pervasive in hardware/software development, and with it comes a convoluting of what it means to be Agile. Are we practicing Agile? Or are we "Lean by Necessity"? What do Agile experts know that we do not? Where can we go to learn more about Agile?

    In organizations, this is where an Agile Coach enters the picture, an Agile expert who knows not only about Agile, but how to convey it to others. What purpose does the Agile Coach serve in an Agile transformation? What does he need, from technical teams or leadership, to facilitate the Agile transformation?

    These are the questions this seminar seeks to answer. We will cover how an Agile Coach may enter an organization, what services they may provide, and what they need to provide those services. This will not be an exhaustive course, as we would need more than 50 minutes. However, it will discuss at a high level the expectations on both sides of the table that need to be met for an Agile transformation to succeed.
