Hey! I’m Derek and I am the voice behind The Critical Path blog and author of Zombie Project Management (KDP 2011). Over the last 25 years, I’ve held titles like U.S. Marine, Start-Up Founder, Project Manager, and Federal Agency PMO Advisor. Certified by both the Project Management Institute and Scrum Alliance, I understand the customer’s needs and wants and then propose the best approach to deliver value and meet their goals.
I take the hand waving and voodoo out of Agile at scale. I provide disciplined coaching, strategic enterprise transformation consulting, and project and portfolio management services.
If you’re looking for where I spend my days (and some nights and weekends), I am a VP of Enterprise Engagement and at LeadingAgile.
