“Anjali was instrumental to our off-site seminar for the Finance Department at Club Med. She provided a 2-day Business Agility and Team Building Workshop for 52 of our employees coming from different backgrounds, cultures, and work environments. Anjali and her colleague educated my staff on the need for Business Agility, and introduced us to many effective techniques and practices that would help make us more agile. Her training was well-adapted to our company’s needs and was well communicated to our multilingual staff. It has since helped us improve our inter-departmental communications and more effectively perform our daily activities. I thought her presentation was informative, fun and interactive. I believe Anjali will help your company not only improve your communication process, but also pick the right practices to be more effective and perform with greater agility. I would gladly hire her again for our next seminar and also highly recommend her consulting practice to any organization.”
Agile Coach, Mentor, and Instructor
As a seasoned Agile Consultant, Coach, Mentor, Instructor, and Workshop/Meeting Facilitator, I help organizations, teams, and individuals fulfill their potential by sharing practical, pragmatic Lean and Agile best practices and processes. I draw on two decades of experience and leadership in a variety of roles—from Software Engineer to Director of Product development—to design and deliver outstanding services that educate, inform, and inspire others to do their best work.
My extensive experience with companies from startups to Fortune 500s gives me unique insight into the challenges of maintaining the right balance between discipline and flexibility—a balance that is essential for maintaining a competitive edge today. With heavy expertise and a light touch, I have successfully helped many organizations implement elegant and effective ways to manage work and engage people—with a clear focus on delivering value.
I channel my experiences in the trenches and my natural ability to connect with people to help individuals and teams develop an Agile mindset, embrace sound engineering practices, and adopt the right Agile and Lean processes that fit their unique environment. My training and coaching experience includes working with co-located and remote teams in a broad range of industries including: high-tech, software, energy, education, healthcare, hospitality, and government. I derive great satisfaction knowing that my work inspires and motivates individuals and teams to engage their projects with greater energy, broader creativity, and deeper purpose.
My strength and success as a technical and business coach and instructor is built on a strong technical foundation—with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Summa Cum Laude) from Drexel University. My passion and curiosity about people, process, and organizations have grown from that foundation through extensive project management training and experience. I hold certifications as a PMP (Project Management Professional), CSM (Certified Scrum Master), CSPO (Certified Scrum Product Owner), and CSP (Certified Scrum Professional). I am also a recognized Agile Team Facilitator and Certified Agile Coach through the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile).
I am part of an active Agile Community—regularly serving in speaking and leadership roles at local events—and founded the South Florida Women In Agile group. I am also a member of the South Florida PMI. When not spending time on something ‘Agile related,’ I enjoy traveling with my husband and daughter, cooking multi-cultural cuisine, and practicing yoga and meditation.
“Anjali is a phenomenal person and provided invaluable support and guidance to our Product Development team as we undertook a transformation to Agile methodologies. Anjali quickly earned the trust and respect of our entire team of Product Managers, Designers, Developers, QA Testers and Project Managers and became a truly integral part of our team. I really think many of us wish she could have just stayed on our team forever. Anjali is an expert of Agile processes, and her ability to target areas for growth and evolution was spot on. Her feedback and observations empowered our team to learn to be Agile by embracing the challenges faced and working through them. As a manager and leader of the team I counted on Anjali for insightful advice and perspective that helped me better manage the organizational change that the Agile transformation engendered. I highly recommend Anjali and would greatly welcome any future opportunity to work with her.”
