Agile is more than a system of methodologies, artifacts, and rituals. It transcends scrum, extreme programming, lean, and such systems. Agile is a mindset that at its core focuses on value creation. It is this mindset that drives rapid iterations that are informed and driven by data and an intimate understanding of the customer. In this way, the agile mindset is adaptive and addresses the evolving needs of your business, irrespective of your backlogs, sprints, and product increments.My emphasis is on delivering results-driven work through agile iteration with gated investment. My approach balances an organization’s portfolio across quick-win benefits, sustainable long-term growth, and disruptive opportunities. This allows us to create and recognize value throughout the lifecycle, and make timely decisions on where additional investments should go.

Give me 100 seconds, and I can pitch you an idea that will inspire you. Give me 100 minutes, and we can have a conversation that will transform your life. Give me 100 days, and we can change the world together.In 100 days, you can make a profound, transformative change. Whether it is acquiring a new skill, making a significant life change, or launching a disruptive new line of business, 100 days of focused effort is enough to make these things a reality.
For personal growth and development, 100 days is sufficient to form lifelong habits. It’s long enough to pursue consequential change, but short enough that you can believe it achievable. This is the quintessential challenge of change. You will only overcome inertia if you pursue an endeavor that matters enough to you, but you need tangible measures of progress to sustain you through the effort.Whatever it is you wish to accomplish, I can create a program that will help you achieve that goal.
These same concepts translate well into a business context. Large organizations, over long periods, suffer because of institutional stamina and memory issues. Projects and initiatives with extended timelines are highly volatile because the organization does not have the stamina to see them through. Instead, the organization responds by introducing frequent changes, repeatedly stopping and starting the effort, creating churn. Employee turnover and attrition exacerbates the issue because it introduces institutional amnesia so the same patterns and mistakes are repeated over and over again.Whether it be core, adjacent, or disruptive initiatives, I can design a roadmap that fits your organization’s institutional stamina and memory tolerance.
