Jeff Anderson

Jeff started his professional life as your typical IT development geek. He tried to create software delivery joy through the use of  things like patterns, agile methods, and overall  object oriented goodness. Jeff continued to be disappointed in the way IT delivery projects were managed, the reason they were started,  and how they ended up.

This dissatisfaction with the status quo led him to gradually embrace a new mission in life, to help IT workers become awesome. To that end Jeff has created the Deloitte LEAN service offering, providing advisory, coaching, and change management services to IT departments. He has built this capability within Deloitte to help IT clients truly transform the way they operate their business. Jeff has played a leadership role in some of the largest Kanban based enterprise transformations worldwide. Recently he has guided several large public sector organizations along the path of organizational maturity.

Jeff continues to add new tools to his organizational transformation utility belt including, lean startup, gamification, design thinking, and other collaborative, high feedback systems necessary to developing the next generation of work environments for knowledge professionals. Jeff is a passionate member of the Lean For Systems and Software Consortium and is a lssc12 Brickell Key nominee.  Jeff blogs frequently at agileconsulting.blogspot.com. Jeff is the proud father of his brand new daughter Mila, and lucky enough to be the husband of the most amazing wife in the world, Barbara.
