Edward Scotcher, Experienced Lean & Agile Trainer and Coach

Biography: Edward Scotcher

Edward Scotcher Experienced Lean & Agile Trainer and Coach

Ed realised very early on in his career as a web developer that he was never going to be managed sensibly, be given clear requirements or get to build anything useful - so he decided to focus his efforts on learning how to lead projects in a way that helps teams deliver instead. That decision took him wildly out of his comfort zone and on a long journey of practical project management and product delivery enlightenment.

Through the years, he has worked at the unglamorous coalface of organisational change and IT delivery, working with teams large and small to help them get stuff done at organisations such as The Financial Times, BBC, UK Government, ITV, ASOS, Global Radio and the RSA Insurance Group, amongst others. He passionately believes in "individuals and interactions over processes and tools", understanding that no system, framework or method can be the magic answer, but only the creativity, enthusiasm and optimism of real people can lead to success.

These days Ed splits his time between training, coaching and business consulting. He does this through a company called Agility in Mind, which is made up of experienced experts who share the same desire to use use lean and agile principles to develop better people, teams and products.
