For 15 years Marcus Hammarberg has been doing agile and lean software development and helping others do it. Always working as a consultant helping individuals, teams, and whole organizations improve their value delivery flow. He has worked in many different settings, from big banks and insurance companies, to start-ups and within retail. At one big insurance company, the first agile team, started by Marcus, eventually spread to a lean initiative across the business.
Marcus is still a keen programmer and still practice teaches the concepts that helped him become a good programmer: TDD, Specification by example, functional programming and Node.
Marcus is a keynote speaker and co-author of Kanban In Action, which has been translated into 5 languages across the globe. He has blogged since 2006 at www.marcusoft.net and spend his spare time playing euphonium in the Salvation Army
2014-2015 Marcus moved to Indonesia with his family to work for the Salvation Army. Unexpectedly his previous experience with lean, agile and kanban was soon put to great use there too.
