Founder of Great Teams, LLC - Engaging Speaker at your next event
Introduction
Howdy. This is another virtual representation of me. I am an agilist and I help teams become better. I also love to speak with a crowd and help them get to the next place, too. I like being a team builder and a consultant so much I founded Great Teams, LLC. 

I've been called many things, but I prefer Jeffrey. Unless of course you knew me in college and I answer to CRASH. 

I like to read. Even more, I like to talk. I love to train and mentor people. I like poker, but I shouldn't play past the homegame level. I am very good at being a dad. I have a good relationship with my wife, but I want it to be better, I want it to be great.

Wow, writing the BDDs. 

+Liz Keogh and all the other great practitioners would tell you it's about building the understanding. The writing is just something you do at the end to capture some of that.

In this post I am interviewed by colleague +Josh Fruit about Change and what a team goes through as it transitions to agile development.

A skeptical PM describes how to make agile reliable. I need to watch this again. 

I'd be interested in what others think, some of whom I've tagged.
