Executive Summary

"Get out of the way" - While adequate leaders dig into the weeds to keep tabs on those working around them, great leaders will place their talent train on the success track and get out of the way relying on strong, trusted relationships to know when more detailed action is required.

Customized Agile Delivery

Creating flexible, yet prescriptive "idea to market" lifecycles are key to enabling your teams to achieve quick, consistent value streams for the organization. Evaluating and mapping existing processes to new toolsets and guiding team adoption of the standardized approach will ensure high quality products will be developed quickly for the enterprise.

Introducing Agile delivery vision, creating story point forecasting and capacity planning tools, configuring JIRA custom workflows and field sets, introducing SAFe® methods, training staff on new processes and tools, influencing standard story requirement writing, and building real-time retrospective templates are just a few ways Jeff has shaped company delivery.

In the quest to create high-performing teams, it is essential to empower staff with the ability to unblock teams resulting in the continual successful delivery. Granting trusted leaders the authority to making rational and clutch decisions as well as introducing status and risk review checkpoints guarantees positive results for the company.

Authorizing key staff to take responsibility of resource identification and interviews for quick ramp-up, initiating status reporting scrum of scrums, establishing tactical response teams to swarm on progress blockers and enabling escalation points for quick issue resolution are some of the ways Jeff has helped teams prevent situations that could hamper progress.

Building Scalability

A successful string of project deliveries is great, but without pre-thought around scaling to meet the portfolio level, the methodology will not be given the strategic stamp of approval or respect by the organization. As processes become comfortable with teams, asking leadership-aligned questions around longstanding viability will help teams come together to establish bigger picture, repeatable processes ensuring long-term success.

Formalizing portfolio status reporting, implementing Agile resource capacity models, identifying cross-team velocity calculations, synthesizing project intake and prioritization processes, standardizing activity-based communications, collaborating on vendor identificaiton and selection and aligning finance stewardship with executive needs are many ways Jeff has ensured an organization has kept a growth orientation.
