Agile and Lean specialist Cain has been practising the fine art of positive change for over a decade. His insights, capabilities and people-person qualities make him an effective trainer, leader and support for individuals, teams and organisations facing challenges. An excellent raconteur and average fly-fisherman, Cain’s enthusiasm extends to almost everything. As an innate philosopher he admits a certain irony in loving a job where everyone’s happier when he leaves than when he arrives. He quotes philosophers in his Agile-related assertions: "If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading” (Lao Tzu); and, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” (Yoda).
Joe specialises in Agile coaching. He is certified as a Professional Scrum Master and Professional Scrum Product Owner (scrum.org). His skills, razor sharp wit and knack for getting to the crux of the problem, and then helping to solve it, make for memorable workshops and engagements; he’s delivered projects all around the world. The kick Joe gets out of successfully helping people on the coal face is surpassed only by the long-term organisational changes they inspire. Whereas his management and technical background, spanning a double decade, is no breaking news, Joe’s Bachelor of Music (Hons) does come as something of a surprise.
When you’ve been doing something well for a long time they say you wrote the book. Luke did. He co-created the Lean Business Analysis Manifesto. Focused and direct, he is an unstoppable force in change leadership and management; a veritable lean mean fighting machine. "Stop starting, start finishing," is his war cry. He’s in his happy place when there’s a problem to untangle, a goal to achieve, working folk to rescue, and the reward of a chocolate self-saucing pudding to be had. Busy is good, so he extends his talent for teaching to coaching kids’ surf life saving in his spare time. Despite his superhuman powers he maintains he is still learning. The adage, "When you think you’re winning, you’re probably not," keeps him humble. But it’s not one he shares with the children.
