As a team player, I change, I deliver, I coach, I mentor, I train, I lead. I am current. I have a sophisticated approach for business change in relation to Lean-Agile and/or Digital. I co-design & assist agility change including Scrum, Kanban, and The Lean Startup in organizations, small and huge, where the culture at first glance was incompatible with Lean-Agile. As I lead a change team, I play my part to stretch boundaries, generate “pull”, & make real change. I lead by example / from backstage, with fit for purpose Lean-Agile methods, synchronisation approaches & business change techniques. I speak publicly to experts because I am passionate about it. I am a passionate, motivated & energetic leader, with a track record of developing teams that "get things done", in digital and non-digital worlds. I have a hands-on leadership style that maximizes progress and market flexibility without losing sustainable team energy, and that ability to identify “needle movers” and make traction quickly. My experience spans telecoms, oil & gas / energy, utilities, supply chain, retail, manufacturing, pharma / chem / biotech, & mobile.
