James Smith

CSD, CSPO, CSM

James Smith first experienced the power of Scrum during a most dramatic of corporate turnarounds. Holding a very painful client-facing position and tiring of having nothing but bad news to communicate to his clients over and over again, a new job search had begun. Then Scrum took seed.

In an incredibly short time, Monday mornings were once again something to look forward to and not to dread. Clients soon began requesting that they slow down their pace; they were overwhelming their IT departments with new features. Life for everyone in the corporation, and for those to whom they came home at night, got much better.

Moving into the ScrumMaster role and being part of the many successful releases delivered to our clients has been an extremely gratifying part of the past years.

He feels that Scrum when properly implemented makes life better for all involved. And at the end of the day, that is a very good thing of which to be a part.

As a trainer, mentor and advisor, he has been honored with the opportunity to bring the spirit and techniques of Scrum with multiple training engagements for organizations like Sony, Boeing, HP and the US Department of Defense.

James holds several qualifications and certifications; he is Six Sigma Certified, a Certified ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Trainer and holds an MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.

Gregory Smith

CSM CSPO CSD

With years of experience managing (surviving?) 2 red haired daughters, I now believe that I can handle 'anything', bring it on!
Seriously though, my enthusiasm for agile and scrum goes back to my first CS professor. She said that 'Computer Science' is a misnomer and that the things we do with computers have barely transitioned from black-magic to an art form, let alone a “hard” science. She explained that efforts to make the software development process consistent and predictable were hugely successful, in making it consistently and predictably AWFUL. Since that day I've sought to be a part of the solution to that problem. After 23 years of attempting to be a part of that solution I whole-heartedly support Scrum, seasoned with XP practices, as the antidote for widespread CS and IT project pathologies.
I began my career as a software engineer in the very early days of the web. I was introduced to Scrum in 1997 and Extreme Programming in 2001. During my entire career I have been able use exclusively Agile techniques for startups and product development companies and continued to refine my approach after joining ThoughtWorks for a 6 year tour of duty as a principal consultant. They say every year of experience at ThoughtWorks is like 7 dog years and it is very true. I was routinely in front of some of the largest, most change resistant and hide-bound clients out there. I draw upon vast experience in making agile take root and grow strong in shaping my Scrum workshops. None of this is academic for me, I have managed my career and practiced my craft using nothing but Agile techniques. My training and consulting workshops are jam packed full of practical advice, deep experience and a well refined and battle hardened set of messages that I have found effective at convincing even the most entrenched agile resistant organizations. I look forward to sharing them with you.
