Agile Product Owner

Bob is a master of Product Ownership, in the Scrum/Agile sense, and of Product Development and Management. Bob digs deep into the product, from both customer and developer perspectives, and walks the knife-edge of prioritization with courage and aplomb. He sets a fantastic example for development teams, delights his customers, and finds time to counsel and mentor other Product folks. I’d love to work with him again!

-David Posey, Agile coach

Leader

Bob wore three hats: Visionary, Communicator, and Leader. As a visionary, he was never satisfied with a good-enough product. He wanted it to be ever-simpler, ever more capable, and everywhere. As a communicator, he was an evangelist to customers and executives around the world, as well as to his development and delivery team. As a leader, he was not not content to improve himself and his direct reports, he worked to improve everybody around him. I intend to keep repeating some of his favorite questions: ‘How did THAT go? What could we have done better?’

Product Manager

I first met Bob when he was working with the auto-support and appliance customer portal at Veritas. He brought a fresh perspective to the program and drove for initiatives that delivered value to the customer install base. He has a way of bringing excitement to the development team he is guiding, where they want to work harder for him.

Bob is an elegant communicator. He is able to break down technical problems to their base and bring solutions that address both the technical challenge and deliver business value. He articulates novel concepts well and is great at getting people to have, “ah-ha” moments.

As a photographer, I like to share pictures of my travels around the world.

Continuous Improvement and the Product Manager

Continuous Improvement and the Product Manager

“What happened and what are we going to do so it doesn’t happen again?” With a new development team and a new project manager, I seemed to always repeat myself. They would often come to me with the latest bug or issue that would need resolving. Delays would hit the...
