Mark Haynes


I'm a renaissance man trapped in a specialist's body. I started out as a biologist and that's why I became an IT guy. I love science but it doesn't pay the bills. I've been an IT professional for many years. I used to be a software developer with an elegant language for a more civilized age. I became a Quality Assurance Analyst because it's better to give than receive. I have been a process improvement specialist because it's easier to negotiate with a terrorist than a Methodologist. But lately, I've been working as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach. Agile is a philosophy, not a methodology. I have drunk the Kool-Aid and it tastes good and of course, that's where the money is. In my current reincarnation, I am focusing on speaking at conferences and writing about agile & IT issues. In interviews, people often ask how long you've been agile? My answer is always. I just didn't know what it was called before. DmarkHaynes Consulting:
