Chad Beier, PST
Chad is an organizational agility advisor and external change agent with WhiteboardConsulting.org and Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org. He promotes organizational agility and positive pressure for change through speaking, advising, coaching and training.
His first experience with agile, Scrum specifically, was in 2005 on a global transformation team responsible for software customizations driven by a global consolidation of accounting software. He ran into typical implementation challenges and organizational impediments.
Around 2012, his passion for lean, agile and continuous improvement grew. He left his traditional business analyst and project manager roles behind and evolved into an internal change agent kickstarting an agile transformation. Now in an advising role as an external change agent across many organizations, he promotes organizational agility and positive pressure for change.
In addition to speaking at conferences across the United States, Chad is active in the Wisconsin agile community – organizing meetups in multiple regions (Mad City Agility and Central Wisconsin Agile) and founding the Mad City Agility Conference.
