“I am very impressed with David’s experience, insights and knowledge of agile, lean, software process improvement and change management. He has already delivered very significant results at the BBC and BBC Worldwide where he has led the adoption of Kanban and demonstrated how he can influence positive cultural change and the emergence of a high maturity organization that delivers more value to the business, faster with higher quality. I believe he is one of the most knowledgeable Kanban coaches and I would heartily recommend him as a “trusted Kanban coach” who will deliver real results based on practical implementable advice.”
“David, is a rare example of a technical person with superb social skills. He has a great ability to learn and implement new ideas. His software development process was clearly world class.”

“David is a great Kanban coach. Look out for his blog, his presentations, or better find him and talk with him about Kanban, agile and Lean. What a source of experience and always ready to share. Introduced the BBC to Kanban and agile. And with success!”
“An expert in agile & lean systems thinking, David has become known across the industry as a trailblazer in making Kanban work for organisations so to improve their volume of output, product quality and delivery cycles. David is very approachable – he’s a fabulous communicator who delights in spreading his knowledge so that everyone can benefit from his knowledge, skills and experiences. Highly recommended.”
