Guide to modern working

I help companies and teams become more effective and connect product strategy with delivery. This often involves agile tecniques, and increasingly Agile OKRs.

I give keynote conference addresses and write books about our digital world and the process change called agile that accompanies digital tools. Read more about my books.

I provide advice, coaching, mentoring and training to managers and teams in how to use agile approaches and OKRs to accelerate delivery, meet deadlines, and execute against strategy. These approaches benefit businesses and create more fulfilling work environments for people.
