Joe Little

Joe is an Agile coach and Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) through Scrum Alliance.  His goal is to use Lean-Agile principles and practices to help firms deliver more business value for customers, to make workers’ lives better and to benefit stakeholders. Two of his passions are helping teams discover business value and discovering new avenues to greater productivity.  He is proud of the several people he has mentored, who are now very strong in Agile.

Joe learned Scrum from Ken Schwaber and was later mentored by Jeff Sutherland, with whom he continues to co-teach.  He also works with several other CSTs (and friends).  He has produced Lean Software Development training with the Poppendiecks.  His preference is to practice Agile as a combination of Scrum, XP and Lean principles and practices.  Joe has been a speaker at many conferences, including Agile20xx and Agile Tour (over several years in various locations), and at many other venues around the world. He started Agile-Carolinas and Agile Charleston.

Having worked in software development and new product development for 20+ years, he is now probably almost a real geek.  Joe was a Big 6 management consultant, a senior business and IT consultant to a number of household names in New York, London and Charlotte. In 1991, he launched Kitty Hawk Consulting.  Joe has led lean-agile-scrum transformations in the US, Canada, France, the UK, Peru, Argentina, India and Romania.

A native son of Virginia, Joe lived in NYC for 20+ years, and he now resides with his family in Charlotte, NC.  He has a BA from Yale and an MBA from NYU.  Joe also has the CSM, CSPO, CSP and CST certifications from Scrum Alliance.
