About the speakers

Don Reinertsen

Don is the author of three best-selling books on product development. For 30 years he has focused on creating fundamental changes in the way organizations develop products. Before starting his own firm, he had extensive management consulting experience at McKinsey and taught executive courses at California Institute of Technology. His books, Developing Products in Half the Time and The Principles of Product Development Flow are product development classics that helped drive the application of just-in-time and other Lean principles within the domain of product development.

David Snowden

David is a researcher and thought leader in the field of knowledge management. He is the founder and chief scientific officer of Cognitive Edge, a research network focusing on complexity theory in sense making. He is an authority on the application of complexity theory to organizations, tacit knowledge, and an observer of the way knowledge is used in organizations. Snowden developed the Cynefin framework, a leader’s guide for decision making and a practical application of complexity theory to management science. Here is a short video that highlights his approach.

April Mills

April leads a guiding coalition for change at the U.S. Navy Naval Shipyard in Puget Sound based on Dr. John Kotter’s Leading Change 8-step model. She has a passion for creating positive change, highlighting how anyone can drive change for themselves and for their organizations and communities. April has struggled with and fought against the inertia and bureaucracy of large entrenched organizations and has practical advice for change agents based on the lessons she has learned.

David Hussman

David teaches and coaches agility in companies of all sizes all over the world. For more than 10 years, David has evolved the successful adoption of agile methods in medical, retail, legal, education, health care, control systems, digital audio, financial and more. David believes in helping companies design processes that help them instead of simply teaching them to follow a process. In addition to working side by side with design and delivery teams, David works with leader and executives to promote the use of agile methods to attack the real challenges of their specific industry. In 2009, David received the Gordon Pask Award from the Agile Alliance.
