Jeff Davis

Agile Coach & DevOps Advocate

Servant-leader with over 20 years IT industry experience. I'm evolving daily as a systems thinker with a learning mindset that is demonstrated through agile habits and a positive cultural influence. I help people, teams, and businesses adapt to change while unlocking innovative ways to deal with failure and complexity. We can become not just resilient, but antifragile (a better version of what we were before we experienced failure). I'm passionate about helping others find superior outcomes, therefore I facilitate positive human interactions to reach shared understanding, and that shared understanding will always lead to higher value. Life and work has a rhythm to it, so, I liken what I do to that of a drummer, conductor, or producer. Those roles are vital to creating a satisfying musical experience. Therefore, I come alongside technology teams, business leaders, and stakeholders within the repeating cadences of their work so that we can expose and understand any lack of structure or disharmony. Then we can adjust our levels and settle into a better tempo. We can use our newfound self-awareness to make better choices for improvement, which helps us take actions that create positive change and more harmonious outcomes, like working software, stronger agile leaders, and healthier teams.
