I’m a Product Owner on a software development team for a financial services firm in the Los Angeles area. I have the pleasure of building software for some of the best financial professionals in the business. I have about 15 years of experience in traditional software development, but in March, 2008 I began the transition from traditional methodologies to Agile, specifically SCRUM.¬†It’s been a bigger challenge than I ever imagined it would be and I’ve learned a lot. A whole lot.

Because we’re not in the business of selling software, my perspective is taken from my experience building enterprise software for the past 19 years. As a result, I might say ‘release’ when others might say ‘ship’. Other than that, it’s all just working with people in an organization to build software.
