Program Manager as COO

I liked this post – captures well what a Technical Program Manager is often asked to own.

Program Manager as COO by Ashwin Rajendra

In October 2014 I was fortunate enough to speak at Scrum Australia. My talk focused on how people are key to building high performance teams.


In addition to the talk I participated in a panel with Henrik Kniberg where we discussed approaches to scaling Scrum at Twitter and Spotify.



Scrum Australia is a great conference. Put it on your list for 2015.

Been a while since I’ve written a blog. I want to write, yet making the time has been challenging.

I’ve had a child, you see. Orla McIntosh Muldoon was born on 16th May, 2014. As she has grown (nearly six months old as of writing) she has become more engaging – big curious eyes, exploring the world around her. So it has been difficult to focus my attention for a sufficient period to write a blog as I’m simply too distracted by her.

At any rate, I did recently attend Scrum Australia. It was the most amazing conference. Well organised, great coaching clinics, fantastic hallway conversations, fun presentations (check Bern Schiffers talk on experimentation – what a riot!).

Back in the swing of things at work after paternity leave. We’re on the journey and have a long road ahead. Watch out for more insight on what we’ve learned in the coming months.

Until then, have a great week and thanks for checking in.
