Sprint, Manager, Applications Development
Melissa Crouch has over 18 years of software development experience including project management, coding, and application development management. Melissa currently manages a group of Agile practitioners within Sprint’s IT Solutions Delivery organization. While Sprint IT has leveraged scrum and Agile for years in pockets of our organization, Melissa was chosen to be a leader in our official Enterprise IT level move toward Agile in 2012.
When Melissa transitioned to Sprint in 1999 she was part of a small technical group embedded with a business team. She saw first-hand the effectiveness of closely coupling business ideas with technical solutions in-person on a daily basis. Melissa is committed to bringing that same level of partnership at scale while still accommodating Enterprise standards and complex architectures.
Melissa has a computer science degree from Missouri State University and holds the following certifications: CSM, CSPO, SAFe Agilist, and PMP. She also serves on the Agilehood KC board helping local companies to learn about Agile together.
