Ian has a passion for team building and Agile coaching. He’s one of the few that really understands the difference between project management and Agile coaching. Ian knows when to guide his teams, and when to let them self-organize. With his technical and leadership background he’s a great asset for any innovative environment. Ian is a calming and positive influence on the development teams he coaches.
Besides his work as an Agile Coach, I worked with Ian on a non-profit and as a developer over the past six years. His enthusiasm for community building helped create the most active and largest technical organization in Montana (Montana Programmers) along with an annual developer conference.
