How I Can Help
Hardware or Software?
Yes! I work with both types of development, with a special focus on mixed hardware/software projects. I’m familiar with everything from phase-gate processes to Agile and Lean methods for both hardware and software, and with a variety of process improvement methods. This broad background enables me to propose solutions which capitalize on the strengths of your organization and fit into your current development framework.

Agile software methods aren’t a perfect fit for hardware development. My colleague Katherine Radeka and I explain why in our new book. Join us to learn agile methods which do work in the challenging world of physical products!
