Kumido Adaptive Strategies
Derek W. Wade

Derek Wade founded Kumido Adaptive Strategies in 2008 to apply principles of cognition and learning to the future of work. He wields the usual tools of agile and lean in unusually scientific and human-centered ways, whether rescuing a troubled Scrum implementation at a nationwide financial enterprise or gelling a fragmented leadership team at a regional consumer products company. Derek has shared his approach through public and private training, his service on the Agile Leadership Network board, and forums including Lean Kanban, Northwestern University’s Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, and the Agile Alliance. Derek tweets at @derekwwade and blogs at derekwwade.net, but he prefers collaborating with real live humans.
