Andy Eley is an Agile coach, educator, facilitator and leader who is passionate about helping teams enjoy their work and create delightful products. He currently works at JP Morgan in Glasgow with technical and non technical teams, but has spent time coaching in many different industries.
Agile started off as something he did at work, but has slowly crept into everyday life; including at home with the family, although his two year old struggles with the concept of limiting ‘work in progress’ or as we call it ‘toys in play’.
He started as a developer, but when he moved to a team experimenting with Scrum, the Scrum Master role was one he really enjoyed. After a year he transitioned to Agile Champion for the wider line of business within a year and was coaching teams across the globe with their first tentative steps into the Agile world.
A deep passion for creating safe, trusted and empowered teams has been developed over the years. While also aiding them to strip back Agile to its principles has meant the teams can grow and really become Agile, instead of just doing Agile.
You’ll find him at various local meetups trying to both share what he knows and learn from his peers.
