Instructors

Chad Beier

I work with all levels of the organization to optimize your business to respond to change. I am passionate about moving organizations and people closer to agility.

My first experience with "agile", Scrum specifically, was in 2005. I was part of a global transformation team responsible for software customizations driven by a global consolidation of accounting software. We ran into typical implementation challenges and organizational impediments.

Around 2012, my passion for lean, agile, and continuous improvement grew. I left my traditional business analyst and project manager roles behind and evolved into an internal change agent kickstarting an agile transformation. Now in an advising role as an external change agent across many organizations, I promote organizational agility and positive pressure for change.

I am a speaker, trainer, and agile coach. I have been a Product Owner, Scrum Master and Development Team member.  I have worked with enterprise companies to small start-ups. While working with many teams across many companies I have found that most problems are not technology problems, but are organizational structure, process, and people problems.  As a trainer I bring storytelling, a broad array of experience, and collaborative approach to teaching. 

I take a practical approach to teaching and coaching organizations how to respond to change and gain organizational agility.  I love teaching and using Scrum, but use many other tools in the agile toolbox when the situation calls for it.
