Lyssa Adkins

Since 2004, Lyssa Adkins has taught Scrum to hundreds of students, coached several agile teams, and mentored many apprentice coaches. She gets a front-row seat as extraordinary nimble coaches develop and go on to entice the best from the teams they train one-on-one and in small groups. Adkins had more than fifteen years of experience directing project teams and groups of project managers in large and small consulting firms, commercial software corporations, and Fortune 500 companies prior to agile, but nothing prepared her for the power of agile done simply and successfully. She delivers the Coaching Agile Teams training course, which allows agile coaches to study, practice, and further their understanding of the skills and mindsets discussed in the book.
