    Big Agile [Lance] has helped us since the beginning of our Scrum transition becoming a trusted part of our organization. The difference in Big Agile from other contracting partners is Lance's success in the real world before becoming a CST. Lance doesn't just know the theory he also knows how to apply the theory, speak with the whole programming department and to Executive Leadership on where to improve. Lance is technical enough to help highlight engineering areas for improvement and business minded enough to call out organizational areas of improvements.

    Matt Kenney
    Director of Product Engineering

    Lance has a great demeanor and approach that really resonated with the team. His background and knowledge helped guide the team through many of the challenges of changing the way we work. If you are looking to step change how your organization delivers software, I couldn't recommend Lance more.

    VP of Marketing/eCommerce

    Lance's "Working on A Scrum Team" training class was informative, interactive and engaging. Our teams found the onsite group training very effective to get everyone (Product Owners, Scrum Teams, Scrum Masters) aligned on the same concept, approach, and best practices… Most importantly, he still works with scrum teams in the trenches and is able to provide thoughtful suggestions for difficult situations.
