Meet Growing Agile
Hello! We are agile coaches who live and breathe agile in everything we do. Our greatest joy comes from helping people and teams achieve what they never thought was possible. Their success is our reward.
Karen Greaves and Samantha Laing have a combined 25+ years in software development, ranging from development to testing to managing. Of these, 15 years have been dedicated to our passion for agile development. We founded Growing Agile in 2012.
We believe that if we want to get better as an industry everyone should have access to basic agile training, which is why we have a free online course covering the Scrum basics. And have a range of affordable courses and books to help you grow your agile knowledge and skills.
Our goal is as simple as our name, to keep growing agile…
Karen is a recovered project manager who loves the simplicity and fun that agile brings to work. She’s usually the loudest person in the room, and loves anything to do with numbers or excel.
Sam lives by her tattoo “Be Brave” and embraces new challenges. As a coach she excels at asking powerful questions that help you reflect. She is also the creative genius behind all our hand drawn slides and sketch notes.
From IT support, Programming through to UX Design, Kevin has dabbled in it all and somehow stumbled into the role of an agile coach. He loves being part of the community and enabling people to be the best they can be.
Rebecca is a little bit of a lot of things – agilist, entrepreneur, once-a-lawyer, philosophiser, Millennial, and adventurer. Rebecca leverage her wide interests and loves to cross-pollinate the wonderful things she learns from these different domains.
