Barbara has been working in Agile from the beginning – the early days of RAD. She has been actively engaged with the Agile Business Consortium (formerly the DSDM Consortium) since day one, and ran one of the early adopter projects in 1994/5 which helped form the first version of DSDM. Since then Barbara has been actively involved all things Agile.
Barbara has led many successful Agile transformations in a variety of sectors. This has meant addressing many of the issues typical of any organisational change and providing coaching and mentoring at all levels within the organisation.
Barbara has been the Agile Business Consortium Director for Professional Development for many years, and is still passionate about developing effective, experienced Agile professionals. She led the Consortium’s Agile Strategy and Portfolio workgroup, which launched a midi book in December 2017. This product was developed by a group with significant experience of both Agile, strategy and portfolio in the complex corporate space. She has also co-authored several other Agile Business Consortium products, including the AgilePM® Handbook and the Estimating for Agile pocketbook.
