Job Description :
Agile: We have done work over the past several years implementing Agile across the org. While we work with several industry-leading names in the Agile space, we’re looking for a vendor-neutral deep expert in Agile to leverage what we have learned and help us put together a scalable architecture leveraging internal capability that will be used in our agile transformation. The keys are
Vendor-neutral. To insure no conflict of interest, we are separating the Agile strategic architecture creation and the solution delivery vendors as this is been a problem in the past.
Proven deep agile expertise. If we don’t recognize the name as an Agile thought leader, it may not be the right person, but send along the bio anyway. We will want to speak to at least 2 reference clients who have worked with this person.
