As a Certified Scrum Trainer, Agile Coach, author, and speaker with over two decades in the business, Angela has introduced Scrum and agile practices to thousands students around the globe. She has worked with some of the largest technology, manufacturing, retail, and financial services companies in the world, along with small start-ups, government organizations, and not-for-profit entities.
Angela began as a traditional project manager – that is, until a project that had gone millions of dollars over budget and become years (yes, years!) overdue prompted the need for something different. After implementing Scrum practices to the ailing project, the results were impressive. Customers enjoyed being able to see regular increments of working product, while teams were happier as they became empowered to be self-managed. It wasn’t long before she’d moved all her projects over to Scrum, eventually going on to help other companies learn how to use the framework and ultimately becoming a Certified Scrum Trainer and Agile Coach.
She is the author of 30 Days to Better Agile, the definitive guide to resolving the toughest challenges in every agile implementation. She also writes for the blog, The Agile Mindset.
