My name is Dennis Phoebus. I have worked as an Enterprise Agile Coach with 20+ years of IT, 10+ years of Scrum and 5+ years of Agile Coaching experience for Fortune 500 companies. I am highly trained and credentialed in Agile: CSM, PSM, CSP-SM, and SAFe SPC. I have expertise in Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Lean, XP, Scrum of Scrum, DAD, and SAFe

I started my career after serving in the US Air Force for 4 years and then returning to college for my BS in Computer Science. I have been a mainframe developer using PL1 and Natural / ADABAS and I have used C++, Java, JavaScript, and HTML and CSS to develop digital solutions. I have held the other IT roles of business analysts, data modeler (relational and dimensional) and project manager.

I first discovered Scrum in 2006 while working at Morris Communication (news print company) as a project manager. The Scrum events provided the project management structure needed at Morris because they lacked a project management methodology. In 2009, I became a Certified Scrum Master (CSM).

In about 2010, I started to realize that the Scum events were not enough to help the team become a high-performance team and that my role as Scrum Master was more than ‘enforcing‘ the Scrum framework. I started my journey to become an Agile Coach. I incorporate the Agile values and principles and the Scrum values (Commitment, Courage, Focus, Openness and Respect) into the team’s Scrum events. I also coach and train my peers and other teams in the utilization of Scrum, Kanban, XP, and Lean.

In 2017, I received certification as a Structured Agile Framework – Program Consultant. This certification allowed my formal entry into the Enterprise Level Coaching role.

I have a diverse skill set: * Scrum Master (CSP) / Agile Coach * Scaled Agile (SAFe SPC, DAD, LeSS) * Agile Tools (JIRA, Confluence, RTC) * User Story, Story Mapping, BDD, TDD * SDLC (Scrum, Kanban, RAD, Water Fall) * JAD / work shop facilitator * Project Manager (PMBOK) * MS Project, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint * CASE Tools (EA, ERwin) * Database (MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL, Sybase) * Web (HTML, CSS, PHP. JSP) * App Development (Java, SQL, Natural) I have worked in multiple industries: * Finance * Banking * Insurance * Education * Government * Software

If there are any questions or need of clarification, please contact me.
