Jason and I work together at Agile Coaching Circles. He has been instrumental in getting the Australia/NZ circle sessions off the ground including facilitating the sessions, partnering with cohosts to identify experiments to try, and ensuring that all those who attend are welcomed. In addition to being an awesome host, Jason also shares his agile coaching experience and knowledge with the attendees in a way that teaches and engages them throughout the sessions.
I had the pleasure of taking part in the SAFe Advanced Scrum Master 5.0 SAFe Accreditation course, facilitated by Jason. The online course provided me with both professional and practical knowledge. Jason has a mastery in what he teaches, his passion, knowledge of Scrum and SAFe is contagious. The course material was engaging and Jason provided real life examples to the theory. Thank you Jason
Jason is an experienced trainer who is passionate about his craft. Combining broad experience and a depth of knowledge across many different industries, he brings the theory to life in engaging and interactive sessions, delivering an effective learning experience.
I recently worked with Jason as a scrum master / agile coach on an agile delivered project. This was my first project as the product owner after years as a subject matter expert. Jason could not have been a greater coach for me as a product owner. His background, experience and knowledge was astounding but even greater was his willingness to share this with me from day 1.
Jason is the most knowledgeable person in Agile I have ever seen. In my 14 years of dynamics CRM experience, implemented 4 projects using agile methodology alone at enterprise level across multiple countries, in which the project worked with Jason in CRM implementation using Dynamics 365 was my best agile CRM implementation ever and it is for one of the South Australia's prestigious utility clients.
Working with Jason on a number of Agile software development projects, it was clear that he was extremely knowledgeable and adaptable. He was key in transforming the way we were delivering, and solved problems creatively. Although we were primarily using SCRUM, Jason would take elements and ideas from other agile frameworks to adapt our delivery style to align to what we were trying to deliver.
Jason coached me on the Agile framework and project delivery methods which helped me to advance in my career. Jason has a unique ability to establish a strong trust bond with the person he works with. He was empathetic and structured during the coaching process, which helped to find my own answers. He is kind, forward-thinking and adaptable and this makes him unique.
Jason possesses unique ability to understand the messages you are trying to communicate and extremely skilful in asking the questions in the coaching sessions which helps you to uncover the questions and answers yourself. He plays dual roles in the conversations, as a coach to uncover the problems and than mentor to guide you through to find the answers which leads you to perceive the solutions.
I had the pleasure of working with Jason on the Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreat Live Online event. Jason proactively stepped up to be a "Theme Master" and act as a Servant Leader for an entire day of the event in APAC. I relied on him to serve his volunteer team, the speakers, and the community at-large. Jason was 100% committed and helped lead and create a wonderful event. I am honored to recommend Jason as an awesome agile person and leader.
Jason made my transition into the Product Owner role seamless. He encouraged participation throughout the project so we delivered with a collaborative approach, sound techniques and kept us on track to deliver a successful project within our time-frame.
Jason has a deep, deep knowledge of agile concepts and practices, coupled with his extensive experience and his easy manner, he has created a positive environment and high performing team…if he did not do his job to level of competence and professionalism he has, we would not have achieved the excellent results we have.
Jason has shown that this role can be performed at a level of excellence that I had not anticipated or imagined. Jason has exceptional interpersonal skills and this makes him a great Agile Coach and role model for the scrum teams and myself.
