I help people, teams, and businesses to not only survive, but to thrive. Through training, coaching, and consulting, I ensure that you continue to succeed even when our work together is done by providing you with the knowledge and tools you need. In the words of the great McPhee:
“When you want me but no longer need me, then I have to go.”
Why Pragmatic Shift? Because I care. Business is hard, change is harder, and seldom are the two parted: But much like felling a tree is easier with an axe than with your hands, I believe both can be made easier-dare I say even enjoyable-given the right tools, and life is too short to not enjoy the ride.
How did it begin? In June 2018 I had made up my mind that to truly grow as a professional I would need to work in as many different contexts as possible, and thus Pragmatic Shift was formed. By October that same year I started my journey to explore the applicability and limitations of Lean and Agile theory in complex environments.
Since then I have worked, learned, and improved, as a professional; Including as a Scrum Master, Agile Coach, Transformation Coach, Enterprise Coach, Professional Trainer, and as a general tinkerer of organizational systems. As a result I have come to value some key principles that I use as a foundation for how I practice:
Professional – Pragmatic – Empirical
Do it well, keep it simple, and follow the evidence.
