About the Author

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson

Jeff started his career in the trenches of enterprise development, creating software delivery joy through the use of things like patterns, agile methods, and overall object oriented goodness.For the most part Jeff was disappointed in the way software delivery projects were managed, the reason they were started, and how they often ended up. This dissatisfaction with the status quo led to Jeff to gradually embrace a new mission in life, to help technology knowledge workers to become awesome at what they do. To that end Jeff Anderson created the Deloitte LEAN service offering, providing advisory, coaching, and change management services to IT departments and software focused businesses. Jeff has built this capability within Deloitte to help organizations truly transform the way they operate their business. Over the last several years Jeff has played a leadership role in some of the largest Kanban based enterprise transformations worldwide.
