ScrumMaster, Trainer and Coach

Key Bank

“Having experienced waterfall, RUP, XP for years and having read a lot about Agile and Scrum, it was Ken's coaching that really made me 'get' Scrum. He is a master at adapting Scrum to a given project tailoring it and making it work. He helped our team launch basic practices of Scrum, but then encouraged us to evolve newer tools each week and build upon our successes as we adopted Scrum, so much so that, we continued to use it long after he left to coach others. That is two great marks of a good coach - he not only teaches best practices but teaches you how to identify and improve your own and you continue to improve even when he is not directly coaching you.” July 24, 2010

“Ken is one of the rare few that really get the Scrum and agile principles. He was able to take a team, including the product owner and turn them into a well performing team. He is an excellent teacher and is able to use his skills to help all levels of management. He had a great big picture view, yet doesn’t miss the details that can make or break a project.” June 18, 2009
