Hello, I'm N*****

I lead and mentor teams towards common strategic goals to delight all stakeholders: customers, developers, release management, operations, and more. I thrive in diverse technical environments and roles. I am recognized as an energetic leader skilled in inspiring teams to continuously grow and achieve, whether using Waterfall or Agile (Kanban, Scrum, XP) methods. My focus is on what we can accomplish in new and efficient ways.

I have pushed to improve processes and products, encouraged people to improve their own skill-set (technical and non-technical) and cajoled people into presenting what they know so that others can learn.  To me, growth of one person is not enough, I want the entire team to grow and grow every week.
