Jenny Tarwater – Owner/Chief Agilist

Jenny TarwaterConnect with Jenny on LinkedIn and Twitter.

Jenny is a twenty-one year veteran of Technical Project Management with an approach of cultivating success and growth in people, process and products. Jenny’s perspective drives cultivating the “small company start up culture” within large companies.

Since 1994, Jenny worked on teams with “an agile mindset” even before learning an official agile methodology. Some of those early iterative and incremental value-based projects included:  the launch of Kansas City’s first web page for the Kansas City Board and Trade; www.80s.com -winner of People Magazine’s 1996 ‘Best of Bytes’; standing up a new record label; acquiring and turning around a failing travel publication; several iconic Sprint device launches; launch of the award-winning Chrysler Connected Vehicle platform UConnect; and several mobile applications. Her approach to continual improvement was illustrated in her leadership of the year-long transformation of Sprint’s Product Development organization into an agile division using several methodologies including Scrum and Kanban. She is currently doing Agile coaching, training, facilitation and consulting as Chief Agilist of Blueshift Innovation.
