About Derek

At LeadingAgile, we are dedicated to solving the challenges associated with Agile in larger, more complex enterprises.

We provide Agile training and coaching, strategic enterprise Agile transformation consulting, and Agile project and portfolio management services.

You want to know my background in around 100 words?
I believe in delivering value through discipline, inspiration and empowerment.

I am an Enterprise Transformation Consultant at LeadingAgile. I am the voice behind The Critical Path blog and author of Zombie Project Management (KDP 2011). Over the last 25 years, I’ve been a U.S. Marine, start-up founder, project manager, and federal agency PMO advisor. As a Certified PMP (Project Management Professional) and PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) through the Project Management Institute and both a Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Scrum Product Owner through the Scrum Alliance, I take the hand waving and voodoo out of Agile at scale.
