Tim Born, Executive Director at JPMorgan Chase
I had the good fortune to have Dave Rooney as one of our agile coaches at Alcatel-Lucent, and I would bring him in again. He knows agile deeply, through obvious experience, and is able to communicate it clearly to the teams. He is dogged in his pursuit of making teams better, but using a gentle rather than abrasive approach. Recommended.
Tim Bacon – Export Development Canada
Glenn Waters' coaching "recipes" creatively combine experience, patience, humour, sincerity and a deep understanding of Lean and Agile techniques. I benefitted from his advice and wealth of accumulated knowledge, and I would love to have the chance to work with him again!
Roger Fortner, CEO, Secure Software Solutions Inc.
I joined a team in 2009 where Dave Rooney was the Agile Coach. He brings a wealth of relevant project experience to a team. He is always positive and is well versed in Agile and associated methodologies. In the case of our project, Dave handled a number of sensitive management issues very well that allowed the development team to function efficiently. I would not hesitate in recommending him and would enjoy working with him again on future projects.
Louis Dionne, Project Manager, Export Development Canada
Glenn Waters was one of the coaches at EDC as part of a multi-year effort to introduce Agile. He was assigned to our team and project and provided just the right amount of coaching to guide us effectively between the huddles, the planning and the retrospective as well as through the hurdles of a pilot project. It was great to work with him as part of the team and benefit from his wisdom – Agile and all.
Ian Hamilton, VP Engineering, Signiant Inc.
Agile training and coaching services provided by Glenn Waters and Dave Rooney were essential to Signiant’s implementation of Agile software development and associated engineering practices. Communication within Signiant has improved dramatically and Signiant is much more responsive to customer needs as a result. Glenn and Dave have a wealth of experience in software development and applying Agile methodologies that I believe will provide immediate return on investment to any software development organization contemplating anything from a complete Agile transition to a simple tune up of existing practices.
Ellen Grove, Software Development Manager, Nortel
Glenn Waters did a super job of leading our team through a turbulent business and organizational environment. He consistently demonstrated personal integrity and sound judgment regarding our projects, teams and processes so that we could work as effectively as possible (and have some fun in the process). Glenn’s support and enthusiasm were critical factors in our team’s successful adoption of Lean and Agile development practices. He consistently models the attitudes and behaviors needed to build strong self-organizing teams, encouraging open communication, mutual respect and shared accountability.
Declan Whelan – Agile Coach, LeanIntuit.com
Dave Rooney has keen insight that allows him to quickly see to the heart of complex issues. He draws out the conversations that need to happen and the actions that need to be taken. He has the courage to say the things that aren't being said and the conviction to stand behind them.
Dan Murphy, Principal, Government Technology Partners
Dave Rooney was one of the original thought leaders on Agile Development techniques in the Ottawa region. As early as 2000 he was engaged in projects in the Canadian Federal Government that were initially developed using waterfall techniques and subsequently saved by Dave deploying Agile approaches before the concept of Agile had really been developed. If you want to ensure success of your software development project – contract Dave and follow his advice and guidance closely.
