The story begins with an awesome agile engineering team; however, traditional management techniques in the rest of the organisation reduces their impact.
This is a story about how agile broke out of engineering and transformed an entire organisation by focusing on shared priorities, customer-centricity and culture.
With over 15 years' experience in the software engineering domain, I have had the opportunity to work for a number of leading companies building high traffic systems. I started my career as a developer in a consultancy, working for telecoms companies, before moving into technology management and leadership.
In the last 10 years I have worked for a number of companies, including Autotrader, eBay and MoneySuperMarket, building consumer facing websites and mobile apps. During this time, I have played key roles in transforming how engineering teams work and increasing their impact by adopting agile practices.
