Welcome, agile practitioner. My name is Ian Hutchison. My aim here is to offer you practical help in applying agile in your organisation, in a way that works for you. I’ve spent over 15 years delivering change, first as a Project Manager and more recently as a Scrum Master and then agile Coach in one of the UK’s largest banks. Having a background of delivering change in a traditional way, I know how tough that can be, particularly in large organisations. If change weren’t already challenging enough, doing so in an agile way can make it seem even more difficult. Academic agile is one thing, practical experience of being agile is something different. This in my focus — agile with a hefty dose of pragmatism.

Agile. It’s more than a hashtag.
