Tim is a consultant and coach with a strong passion for Agile philosophy. He’s worked in IT delivery for 18 years, starting his career in the PwC IT consulting graduate program. Currently, he’s an Open Innovation Labs Engagement Lead at Red Hat. In the early stages of Tim’s career, he completed several client engagements delivering development, test, architecture and the project management of complex systems integration programs. These were often vast projects delivering little business value to the client or their customers until the big bang went live. Looking to deliver value to customers quicker and more regularly, he moved to a smaller consultancy where he worked on projects using Agile. As Tim adapted his approach, he came to realize that the core principles and values behind Agile are what really drives his passion for IT delivery. After 12 years of taking Agile approaches in everything he did, he was as motivated as ever by building focused, passionate and highly capable cross-functional teams in a room dedicated to collaboratively delivering business value. Tim also coaches Agile programs at scale involving multiple teams, suppliers, and geographies making use of the many ideas and techniques presented in frameworks such as SAFe, LeSS and DAD. He has particular focus and interest in enabling teams to reach rapid continuous delivery through automation, eXtreme Programming practices, and DevOps collaboration.
