Over 25 years Allan Kelly has held just about every job in the software world: system admin, tester, developer, architect, product manager and development manager. Sometime about 2001 Allan came to the conclusion that he could fix the code but the real problems were those that created the bad code. To fix those he had to stop coding and move to the management side and address the thinking and processes that created those problems.Today he is based in London and works for Software Strategy Ltd. helping companies adopt and deepen Agile and Lean practices through training, consulting and coaching. He specialises in working with software product companies, aligning company strategy with products and processes.In addition to numerous journal articles and conference presentations he is the author of "Changing Software Development: Learning to become Agile" (Wiley, 2008) and more recently "Business Patterns for Software Developers" (Wiley, 2012).Both books reflect Allan's journey from code to management. The first is concerned with the role of knowledge, learning and change in the development space - and why Agile is a better fit for the discipline. The second, which hardly contains the words "Agile" or "Lean" looks at how to build a successfully software business.Finally, Allan is the creator of Retrospective Dialogue Sheets, www.dialoguesheets.com.
