Executive Agile Coach and Trainer Devsquads

Amr is a software development practitioner, trainer and coach who thrives on delighting his clients. By bringing together expertise in business-focused agile adoption, systems thinking, and the human dynamics of software development, Amr has been able to consistently help teams and organizations create spectacular results and get the most from their Agile and Lean adoption initiatives. Amr’s specialties include program and project management, test-first programming, and evolutionary design and architecture.

Corporate culture is Amr’s current passion. High performance teams are rare; Agile methods are a great toolset, but they are not enough. For the type of success where teams are 2x, 5x, and 10x better – and remain so, they need the technical practices (from agile/ lean/ etc.) as well as individual human dynamics and a business environment that supports and encourages the correct behavior.

A sought-after speaker for conferences around the world, Amr is the author of Agile Adoption Patterns: A Roadmap To Organizational Success and Patterns of Agile Software Adoption. He holds a Masters in Computer Science from Utah State. He currently lives in Austin, Texas.
