Happy Scrum People at Intuit

On December 17 and 18 I held a Scrum training course at Intuit in Waltham, MA. The Intuit folks quickly grokked the importance of understanding and implementing agile principles and values.  I found that extremely impressive.

The end result was a group of twenty happy Scrum people.

I am an agile coach and an angel investor. As an agile coach, I have consulted and trained at dozens of companies. Major agile coaching engagements have been with Paypal, State Street, edX, Carbonite, and Symantec. I typically begin with culture first and then proceed to process improvement and business results. I believe in a non-confrontational, non-coercive approach to change in which people are invited to be and act in a new way. This takes the pain out of agile transformations.

With Rob Rubin, an online education pioneer and the Founding VP of Engineering at edX, I recently created DemingWay.com, an online agile education portal that we plan to grow until it has the best agile content and the best learning platform.
