I work with individuals and small groups to help them master the art of pursuing a goal under conditions of uncertainty and change.
I have been practicing, teaching, coaching, and speaking about Agile since 2007. For most of my career, I worked in the Tech industry helping organizations adopt the Agile practices that enabled them to develop products faster, cheaper, and of higher quality. For more information about this, please see my LinkedIn profile.
At the same time, I was using Agile to improve my productivity and personal development. As a result, I became particularly interested in how Agile’s iterative, incremental and evolutionary qualities parallel that of contemplative disciplines like meditation and yoga.
I believe Agile has great potential as an empirical, sustainable, and collaborative discipline far beyond its origin in software development.
I’m especially good at breaking large, overwhelming challenges into smaller, manageable pieces. I’ve helped an individual or team overcome some obstacle literally thousands of times. My approach is direct, practical, and action-oriented.
In addition to coaching, I offer classes in a wide range of Agile and Lean Startup topics. I am located in San Francisco.

Amy was a huge help and has such a bright personality! Prior to our appointment, I thought that I knew everything needed to pitch to investors. However, after working with Amy, I learned SO much new information. This session helped me realize that I still needed more work on my business model. Will definitley work with her again in the near future!Nneka Utah, MSc
I attended a talk at the San Francisco Professional Career Network, and Amy spoke there about using Agile methodologies for job searching. The moment I came home, I implemented her suggestions, to great effect. The To Do/Doing/Done list is now a daily routine; and my time is not only significantly more organized, but also fully trackable at the end of a day, week, or month.Peter Ferber
