Cheryl Hammond, aka bsktcase, has a couple decades' experience as a software developer in the private and public sectors. She led her team's successful adoption of Scrumban for a mission-critical regulatory compliance project under multiagency state and federal government oversight, as well as mentored former COBOL devs into true-believing unit-testing XP evangelists, all of which leads her to believe that anything is possible. She is not sorry for her many biases, including strong preferences for servant-style leadership; team-based, holistic problem-solving; and a strong aversion to agile zealotry. Whether consulting or in-house, Cheryl endeavors to make life suck less for software delivery organizations and the humans who inhabit them.
