Joe

I am an Agilist, Disruptor, Continuous Learner and Dealer of Hope who loves to help people learn Agile and integrate it into their lives. Over the course of my career, I have coached organizations, executives, management and teams on what it means to BE Agile, why it makes sense and where/how to experiment. In becoming Agile, we are effectively leading a paradigm shift that starts with an open mind. From there, anything is possible and achievable. As a trainer, I am passionate about teaching Agility in a fun and digestible format. I love to help students on their path to certification while advising them of how to best integrate the knowledge they are gaining. I look forward to serving you and wish you all the best on your Agile journey! Enjoy the ride 😊.
