Principal Agile Consultant, SAFe® Program Consultant Trainer, Certified Scrum Master, PMI Agile Certified Practitioner, Lean Six Sigma Green BeltSometimes simplicity brings clarity to a complex situation. That’s been Ann’s experience in her 20+ years as an IT manager, agile consultant, training director, agile coaching division leader—and in facilitating the transition to agility for teams and individuals. She’s passionate about helping people rediscover joy in their work. Her favorite coaching moments involve the aha factor—like when an entire organization is in the middle of a big room planning event, suddenly sees what needs fixing and then commits to tackling the issues together. Since Ann was introduced to agile methods in 2003, she's enjoyed working with people across industries and system platforms to help them realize the benefits of an adaptive and collaborative workplace.
