Enterprise Solution Architect
Chris is veteran of many Agile Transformations at Fortune 10 companies in a variety of roles including: ScrumMaster, Team Agile Coach, Enterprise Agile Coach and Transformation Architect and Leader. Along the way, Chris has developed a unique perspective on what’s most effective in Transformations (as well as what’s not) and most importantly, what outcomes have proven decisive vs. those that sound cool, but don’t have tangible impact to ultimate success or failure. An avid reader, amateur historian and armchair economist, Chris often looks outside the Agile industry for inspiration and new ideas and doesn’t fit neatly into ‘Scrum Advocate’ or ‘SAFe Specialist’ boxes. Rather, Chris leverages the best ideas from many different domains when making recommendations to clients. When not taking clients from Zero to One on their Agile and DevOps Transformations, Chris can be found spending time with his amazing wife and two wonderful sons enjoying the best of Michigan’s weather (the 4-5 months a year that’s an option.) Also, Chris is not the biggest fan of writing in the 3rd person, for what it’s worth.
Mark Cruth is an Enterprise Solutions Architect with Atlassian, working with organizations around the world to improve the connection between the work being done and the goals being pursued with the help of Jira Align. An Agile advocate since 2009, Mark has made it his mission to inject the values and principles of Agile into everything he does. His deep knowledge in Agile product development and team dynamics stem from his diverse experience supporting transformation and value delivery as an Agile Coach, Scrum Master, and Product Owner across several different industries, including Manufacturing, eCommerce, Big Data, and FinTech. When not heads down in the latest book on self-management or deep in conversation with a leadership team, Mark can be found reading one of his favorite sci-fi novels (specifically anything by Brandon Sanderson) or playing with Legos with his kids.
