The following recommend me for Agile Coaching and Training.
“From the first meeting it became clear to us that she [Lynn] was a real expert. She understood our concerns and did an excellent job helping us adapt general agile and SAFe principles to our specific situation. Her credibility played an instrumental role in converting skeptics, including myself, to believers. Lynn is a great communicator and facilitator, she doesn’t just lecture, she listens first, and asks pointed questions before making her recommendations. Our Agile transformation program was a resounding success, and Lynn played a key role in making it happen.”
-Mike Lurye, Product Management Director
“What most impressed me about Lynn is that she has very good judgement and understands how to get to things that actually matter. She also has a deep understanding of the technologies, which allows her to manage people’s expectations (whether it’s C level or middle manager) in terms of what’s realistic and what can be accomplished.”
-Doug, VP of Technology Services
“Having seen Lynn present, and knowing her work, I can say that she has unmatched understanding of the specific challenges of doing Agile in BI teams. She understands the entire landscape, from the peculiar organizational structures to the limitations of the available tools. Better yet, she can take this astounding amount of detail and complexity and distill it into a very digestible format, always with very practical advice on how to make Agile work in what might seem like very difficult circumstances.”
-Tom Grant, Senior Consultant
“Of the All Out Scrum course: I learned more in 4 days of the workshop than in 2 months of reading articles and books. It was a great experience with a wonderful amount of hands-on exercises. We were able to walk away with a solid understanding of the process and concepts.”
“Lynn’s background of real world experience translates to useful knowledge & expertise to pass along. Her deep understanding of business intelligence & data warehousing allows her to provide relevant case studies and relay what works and what doesn’t in a variety of scenarios.”
Oh, and she’s fun & approachable!

“Lynn Winterboer recently gave our Amazon BI/DW community a great talk about Agile BI and BDD Stories. The content she provided and the way she delivered the information is extremely useful for us! We are scheduling more talks with her in the near future.”
Abebooks, Subsidiary of Amazon
“My company engaged with Lynn as we embarked on an Agile journey for a newly-established Business Intelligence/Data Warehouse team. Lynn’s knowlege of both Agile and BI/DW gave our team the skills and confidence necessary to successfully implement the first datamart. Had we not engaged with Lynn, I believe the datamart would have taken much longer to implement and would not have had the quality we needed. After the initial project, Lynn continued to provide me ad hoc coaching and proved herself to be an invaluable resource to me and my company. I highly recommend Lynn as an Agile Coach. ”
-Liz Voss, Project Manager
