Agile and Cultural Change
Moving to Agility is in fact a cultural change. Every organization has an existing culture; this existing culture is seldom intentionally designed from the start. Instead, various forces shape the culture over time. Often these forces are unmanaged. The result is a culture that is not aligned with the goals and objectives of the business. Agile aligns teams with business goals and objectives. This is usually an interesting process. We provide Agile coaching and training that encourages greatness in teams and their organizations.
The Story of New Technology Solutions
NewTech started life in 1993 as a company devoted to training and consulting in Microsoft platforms and tools. The company founder, Dan Mezick, has a technical background that includes several software patents. NewTech started organizing user groups in Connecticut and as a result of this community work, caught the attention of Microsoft. Dan worked closely with Microsoft from 1993 to 2002 creating Microsoft Developer Days, an annual “by developers, for developers” event held in 131 cities worldwide. NewTech successfully organized and ran these events in 2 of the 9 original venues, Hartford and Boston, attracting up to 600 attendees per event. Dan Mezick himself has personally delivered consulting and training to over 70,000 individuals spanning a period of almost 20 years.
In 2007, we took a serious interest in Agile and Scrum, the Agile framework that encourages software teams to be great. Since then we have delivered expert guidance on Agile, Scrum, and cultural change to organizations of all sizes. Our customers include Zappos, Orpheus Orchestra, CIGNA Insurance, Sikorsky Aircraft, Siemens Healthcare, and dozens of smaller enterprises.
We help organize and convene monthly user group meetings at Agile Boston and Agile Connecticut. Several times a year we convene larger events such as Agile Boston Open Space, and Give Thanks for Scrum.
Dan Mezick is active as a leader in the Greater Boston and worldwide Agile community. He is an invited speaker at industry conferences including Scrum Gatherings and Agile 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Dan writes for InfoQ.com, the leading news outlet for the Agile community online.
