I lead transformation advisory teams that help client CxOs go from achieving tech outcomes to creating business impact. I do so by leveraging my cross-functional experience of 22 years in a variety of digital, product, and tech roles such as Director of Innovation, Head of Technology, Product Principal, and Leadership Coach. I am able to avoid providing impractical, generic, or superficial advice thanks to prior hands-on experience with product development and systems integration as shared below.
I consult independently in addition to my role at ThoughtWorks.
I have lots of experience with agile operating models and in improving ways of working in PMO, demand & capacity management, delivery management, product management, and executive decision making.
Earlier in my career, I worked as an application developer and software architect for ten years including five years of applying Extreme Programming methods such as test-driven development, continuous integration, and pair programming. As a product principal on GoCD, a continuous delivery pipeline tool, I conceptualized, designed, and served as a market-facing product manager for capabilities such as its command repository and its support for polling package repositories.
My first book, Agile IT Org Design, published by Addison-Wesley (a unit of Pearson) in 2015, describes how to improve organizational agility through orgdesign.
Enterprisers Project—a joint initiative of Harvard Business Review and RedHat—featured it as a must-read at the behest of John Marcante, CIO of Vanguard—the investment behemoth. The book was also featured in a digital leaders reading list thanks to a recommendation from Nick Williams, then-Managing Director, Consumer Digital, Lloyds Banking Group.
