    Alan Short

    President and General Manager

    United States - Tests: 1

    Is your business exactly where you want it to be? You don’t have any any problems to solve or improvements to make? Is your business perfect? Probably not. Even those of us who have taken on the challenge of helping others improve, and sometimes transform, their businesses have problems and work to improve on a daily basis. (Shhhh!, don’t tell anyone, but we make a lot of mistakes too. Good mistakes that still move us forward and even some where we ask ourselves what we were thinking. But the progress is always forward and tomorrow always turns out to be better than yesterday.) So if you want to improve on any or all of the following then we can help you without a shadow of a doubt: • Revenue generation • New sources of revenue • Profit • Costs • Quality • Customer service / satisfaction • Time • Frustration • Employee engagement • Delays • Problem Solving • Control • Processes and systems • Value creation and delivery It is not magic. Everything we do is something you could do all on your own. You could teach yourself and do it. The problem is that you are running a business and probably don’t have the time to learn and even less time to make costly mistakes and missteps. We all need help with things for which we either do not have the time, resources, or talent. If we did we would be perfect. No one is. If you want to generate more revenue (and profits) through better marketing then we can help. If you want improved profits, problems solved permanently, fewer surprises, and happier customers (or patients, clients, patrons, etc.) then we can help. If you want to free up more of your time to do what you do best and enjoy while letting others do the same and still enjoy the increased revenue and profits and reduced problems, then we can help.

    Agile Coach, Lean IdeaLab, Project Manager, Certified Scrum Master

    United States - Tests: 1

    I have 17 years of experience. Using Agile and Lean, I created the Lean IdeaLab which successfully took the Lean Startup to an established company to quickly innovate. In the first 4 sprints/iterations (8 weeks total), we created 4 MVP's (see below for more info). We created a Lean User Advisory Panel of 850 enthusiastic users without spending a dime. I will show you how to quickly set up a Lean IdeaLab and why every company should have one! Agile and Scrum Coaching: I also provide Agile and Scrum coaching (I'm a CSM and CSPO). I've been a Sr. Program Manager for over 10 years. If you have a team of 8 and I help you achieve just a 5% improvement, that is over $40,000 in just one year. You're looking for results - as there is a LOT of bad Agile and Scrum out there. When looking for a great Agile coach, ask the following questions: -How often do you actually deploy to production (we deploy every two weeks on the night the sprint ends! We've done this for years now.) -How many teams have you successfully started up? (I've started up 5) -How long have you been a Scrum Master (I've been one for over 5 years on multiple teams) -Have you ever been coached or consulted by outside Agile coaches? (I've worked with Lyssa Adkins, author of Coaching Agile Teams and Accenture.) -How well does your team complete what they've committed? (For 2012, we completed 95.5% of what we committed to!) -What percentage of production bug fixes were made (For 2012, we only spent 1.2% of sprint points for production bugs, achieving very high quality). I love Agile and Scrum (I've even applied it to how the software engineers reporting to me set their goals for their performance appraisal). What you'll get with me: Instead of taking a consultant approach and saying how you need to improve x, y, z, I take a coaching approach where I find out your situation and context, and work with you and your team(s) to come up with changes they buy into and want to make. It is a very different approach than a consultant. Now, about the Lean IdeaLab: We achieved some amazing results in just the first 4 sprints (total of 8 weeks): -4 MVP’s - Created 4 Minimum Viable Products (MVP’s), including our first mobile app -User Advisory Panel – We sent out a survey and later received over 850 responses to join our panel -Lean IdeaJam - Organized our first off-site IdeaJam session with 10 cross-departmental employees -Companywide Presentation and Survey of MVP’s and future Plans and Ideas – Why we waited until we had 3 MVP’s to show the company before we announced the IdeaLab team and sent an internal survey -Culture Change – We quickly began changing the culture by showing how people’s ideas are quickly turned into MVP’s and how our simple process for evaluating ideas means every idea gets a fair shot Unlike other coaches and consultants, I will share with you the exact documents I used, the key expectations we set for the team, the survey questions, etc., so you can quickly modify and set up a Lean IdeaLab. It has been the most exciting thing I've ever done, and has produced the best results. Again, you want someone who can help deliver results and make a big impact. I'm happy to talk to you about how I can help. Andrew Crookston
