Meet The Coach: Daniel Lynn

In this interview, Agile Coach Daniel Lynn, shares the inspiration for doing what he does so well

1. Can you summarize for us your career path and how you came to be an Agile coach?

My career path was a bit winding. I started programming as a kid and that led me into early jobs writing software - mostly continuing education software for universities and government agencies. Eventually, I set software development aside to spend a few years working in data center operations. However, a number of projects in what we would now call DevOps brought me back to development. 

Building software that automates datacenter automation can be hectic and about this time, our team started learning about ...

In 2010, CIO Magazine identified 3 global technology trends that would change how companies used technology: Cloud Computing, Mobile and Agile. All of these trends have grown into major movements, and while Cloud Computing and Mobile are prevalent and used at a consumer level, agile methods are often confused with being flexible and nimble methods that are light-weight at best, chaotic and undisciplined at worst, rather than disciplined iterative and incremental methods.

Today, over 80% of IT departments say they are using agile methods to deliver at least some IT projects, up from 49% just a few years earlier.

For my recent Certified Scrum Product Owner class, I asked participants to make a video that they can take back to their colleagues at their work places. This post captures the activities of one such team and their progression to making an awesome final video. Here is the final video after their fourth sprint. (each sprint was 20 mins duration)

How does this compare to their product vision statement?

Folks who made this video did not have any video editing experience and they had to learn technology (windows movie maker) and develop content during their sprint working time (20 mins ...
