"Agile" Allan Kelly
I make digital development teams more effective and enhance delivery with agile approaches to reduce delay and risk while enhancing value.
I've been called aThought Leader but clients have a habit of calling me Agile Allan. Once upon a time I was a programmer, now I keep my programming hand in but I spend most of my time with team and managers, looking at processes and helping decide what the right thing is.
Right now I'm probably best known for my work onContinuous Digital: the alternative to projects - formerly known as #NoProjects.
I work flexible with a number of companies through my companySoftware Strategy Ltd providing Agile training, Agile coaching/consultancy and more general business advice for digital companies.
