Paula Stewart, 

Business Agility Consultant, Coach, and Trainer

Paula saw a pattern of gaps in Agile transformations that had a human cost to teams, organizations, and customers. Her search to make a difference is why she is a contributing member of some of the leading learning ecosystems in these areas constantly sharing experiences and ideas:

  1. Systems Thinking
  2. Lean
  3. Patterns
  4. Transformational Coaching
  5. Organizational Performance

Paula empowers other Agile coaches and leaders.

Paula has successfully utilized value-stream mapping and flow mapping models to improve relationships between business groups or between business groups and IT while eliminating waste in processes. She embraces pattern-based systems thinking and empirical process control in her roles as a product owner, scrum master, and Agile coach. Doctors, nurses, purchasing directors, lawyers, product managers, and sales teams have noted that Paula understands their domains quickly and provides enabling capabilities. Her solutions have been deployed to multiple lines of business, positively impacting patient safety. She has had the experience of "Badass: Making Users Awesome" and wants to empower teams to have that same experience.

By working closely and iteratively with key business users, Paula has had customers, lead architects, engineers, and leadership thank her for "being their lifeboat in a project" or "changing their work and making it fun." 

Paula's background in both business and in most IT roles gives her a holistic perspective and the ability to empathize with engineers, customers, leaders, and business owners. 

Paula has received standing ovations from teams for her work at the team level. 

Paula's love of adventure has meant that she has courageously experimented with new patterns and approaches including the Theory of Constraints and she keeps enticing Rich to join her in webinars, workshops, and training.
