Nick has 30 years’ experience in software development and is one of the pioneers of scaling agility, having worked with Dean Leffingwell in the early days of SAFe. He has hands-on and in-depth experience helping organizations migrate to lean and agile behaviors. In his approach, Nick focuses on practical outcomes based on solid lean and agile principles—not on a particular method or practice. He may be systematic and pragmatic, but for Nick, it all comes together at the close of a group’s first PI planning event. Usually after many weeks of hard work, often with considerable skepticism, Nick knows he’s succeeded when initially wary faces look genuinely pleased and impressed about what they’ve achieved.
