“As an Agile Coach I had the opportunity to work with James when he was a product owner at Littler. James and I worked closely together during the project inception phase of a SharePoint implementation for a document workflow system for the law firm. We worked together on release planning, story mapping sessions, iteration planning and the defining of the personas of the product’s users.
James is an exceptional product owner. He intuitively understands Agile processes and he was great to collaborate with on the project. He had a mastery of the domain and so he was able to create effective story cards for the team. He also worked well with the development team in prioritizing their work and providing details on story cards through consistent collaboration with them.
After having the opportunity to work with James I can highly recommend him as an Agile Product Owner or, now that he has his CSM certification, as an Iteration Manager/Scrum Master” — Tom Looy Agile Leader at GE Software
James was the go-to man for all marketing programs with Jadugar customers as well as handling market research for clients. James would take over from the other Jadagar consultants as a technical project neared launch. He has very effective program management and communications skills making him an ideal candidate for any program/project management or marketing roles. - Raza ZaidiDigital Music & Video Products
