Tools & Methodologies

I've worked in a wide variety of contexts and with many tools and processes. Below is a list of some of them (if you want to know where I have the bulk of my experience)

Processes

  • Waterfall Development

  • Agile Development (certified scrummaster, part of Yahoo!'s pilot program in the early 2000s)

  • Hybrid Agile (often includes daily standups and product backlogs. But where developers do sprint planning and work in sprints, design--especially ideation and concepting--happens prior to dev sprints)

  • All sorts of variations of the three above with organization prioritization processes layered in, using OKRs, KPIs, etc. I haven't encountered a framework where I haven't been able to adapt to a company's processes and workflows, or suggest improvements
