Who?: Jeff Anderson

Jeff Anderson started his professional life as your typical IT development geek, creating software delivery joy through the use of things like patterns, agile methods, and overall object oriented goodness.

For the most part he was disappointed in the way IT delivery projects were managed, the reason they were started and how they ended up. This dissatisfaction with the status quo led him to gradually embrace a new mission in life, to help IT knowledge workers to become awesome at what they do.

To that end he has created the Deloitte LEAN service offering, providing advisory, coaching, and change management services to IT departments. He has built this capability within Deloitte to help their IT clients truly transform the way they operate their business.

Over the last several years, he has played a leadership role in some of the largest Kanban based enterprise transformations worldwide. Recently he guided several large public sector organizations along the path of becoming a learning organization.

He keeps adding new thinking tools to his organizational transformation utility belt, including lean start-up, gamification, business model generation, and other collaborative, high feedback systems necessary to developing the next generation of work environments for knowledge professionals.

He is a founding fellow of the Lean For Systems and Software Consortium, a limited WIP enthusiast, and have the honor of being a lssc12 Brickell Key nominee.  He blogs frequently at agileconsulting.blogspot.com.
