Mad City Agility Conference 2021
Are you a trailblazer? Rebel? Change agent? Boat rocker? Welcome!
"Mad" is typically a reference to "mad scientist" which implies outside of the norm thinking and experimentation. That's Mad City Agility 2020 - we are focusing on revolutionary, rebellious, "mad" thinking that is required in 2020 and beyond for organizational agility.
We are about 2 decades into the agile revolution. As we enter the Roaring ‘20s of Agility let’s use the empirical data we have since the creation of the agile manifesto to forecast the future.
Chad is an organizational agility advisor and external change agent with WhiteboardConsulting.org and Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org. He promotes organizational agility and positive pressure for change through speaking, advising, coaching, and training.
His first experience with "agile", Scrum specifically, was in 2005 on a global transformation team responsible for software customizations driven by a global consolidation of accounting software. He ran into typical implementation challenges and organizational impediments.
Around 2012, his passion for lean, agile, and continuous improvement grew. He left his traditional business analyst and project manager roles behind and evolved into an internal change agent kickstarting an agile transformation. Now in an advising role as an external change agent across many organizations, he promotes organizational agility and positive pressure for change.
Jeff is a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org, Agile coach and speaker. He has been a Product Owner, Scrum Master and Development Team member and has worked with companies ranging from enterprise to small start-ups. While working with many teams across many companies Jeff has found that most problems are not technology problems, but are organizational structure, process, and people problems. Jeff brings storytelling, a broad array of experience, along with a collaborative approach to teaching and speaking.
