I am passionate about helping organizations continuously improve. My intentions are to help you focus energy on possibilities - not problems - and to be authentic in all interactions. Wherever you are at on your journey I encourage you to challenge the status quo! Rock the boat! Speak up! I am excited to learn about you and from you. I am an enthusiastic consultant, coach, and trainer - let’s work together with purpose and passion to make our world better - one change at a time.
My goal is to make work not suck, as an agile coach I transforms organizations through setting up an environment of continuous improvement and learning. I use authenticity and the kind truth to align organizations to be more responsive and adaptive to change. I nudge people and organizations to be the change they want to see in the world.
My passion is to create engaged, productive, and innovating teams. This is a daily challenge that continually pushes me to grow personally and professionally.
I am on a journey to change the world one organization at a time. I draw my passion from making positive impact on people's lives. I do that by sharing my knowledge and experience gained as an agile coach and trainer. As an idealist, I see everything that can be. I set the bar really high and strive for reaching these heights. I work hard to identify realistic approaches to problem solving through authentic, honest interactions with all people. I prefer collaboration over competition which allows us to learn much more from each other.Let’s explore! Let’s change the world together!
I enjoy working with new technologies, and solving real problems for people. While my historical background is in application development, my passion is in Agile and DevOps Consulting - helping companies improve and making people's jobs suck less.

David teaches and coaches product discovery through iterative delivery. He has spent the last 15 years coaching agility and producing products for companies of all sizes around the world. David’s coaching is non-dogmatic and pragmatic.

David spends most of his time with teams, helping them create and validate product ideas and roadmaps with responsive engineering. He also works with leadership teams to pragmatically introduce the type of lasting agility that fosters innovation and creates a competitive edge. David owns and guides DevJam (www.devjam.com), a composition of mentors, producers and builders. DevJammers focus on using agile methods to help people and companies improve their product learning through faster deliver cycles and continuous delivery.
