Anna Obukhova is a global agile portfolio-delivery manager for a large investment bank in London. She’s worked with agile methodologies since 2004 as a ScrumMaster, project/program/portfolio manager and agile coach, and is mainly interested in distributed and dispersed projects and effectiveness of team communication in such conditions. Her passion is to collect and share the best industry and company practices in agile management. She helps agile teams and programmers to improve their processes and transition from waterfall to agile in corporate environments. She uses her education in biology to connect working tips and recommendations with the natural processes that happen in our bodies (especially in the brain). She believes it can explain a lot and she’s very excited about how naturally agile works.
