Hey! I’m Derek and I’m the voice behind The Critical Path blog and author of Zombie Project Management (KDP 2011). Over the last 25 years, I’ve held titles like U.S. Marine, Start-Up Founder, Project Manager, and Federal Agency PMO Advisor. As a Certified PMP® (Project Management Professional) and PMI-ACP® (Agile Certified Practitioner) through the Project Management Institute and both a Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Scrum Product Owner through the Scrum Alliance, I identify the customer’s needs and wants and then proposes the best approach to deliver value and meet their goals.
I take the hand waving and voodoo out of Agile at scale. I provide disciplined coaching, strategic enterprise transformation consulting, and project and portfolio management services.
