Bhavani Krishnan, Agile Expert
Change begins with the heart of the individual and ripples through the collective mindset of the organization - Bhavani understands this well, amongst a Agile coaching population focused so heavily on frameworks and tactics, which always challenge the intellect. Bhavani surfaces and resolves the fear that underlies change by seeking all perspectives and striving for a renewed connection between people in a way that naturally supports Adaptive thinking. She is a consummate professional who has demonstrated Agile coaching successes all the way to the most senior executive level. At the same time, she remains an avid, life-long learner and a willing and accomplished collaborator and servant leader. She strives to create a healthy balance between provocative and practical. Bhavani holds an alphabet soup of certifications: ICP, ICP ATF, SPC 4.0, CSM, and PMI ACP.
