The Doctor, Integrity Inspired Solutions
Phil Ledgerwood has been a nerd for a very long time and has been online since his first 300 baud modem on his Apple IIe when he was 12.
Born in the Philippines, Phil grew up in Kansas City and, beginning his career making ASP websites for a multimedia startup, he has gone on to work with nearly every development team in the metro area. He has probably worked with yours at some point. He may be working with yours, now.
In 2011, Phil met Troy Tuttle, Lee Brandt, and Travis Dietz. These men had a profound influence on his direction. Although he had helped several organizations with XP and Scrum practices, this group exposed him to Kanban and Lean ways of thinking, and he has never gone back. Except when people pay him to go back.
Phil has consulted for companies both large and small in the Kansas City area helping them become leaner and more agile. He has learned from a large body of victories (and a much smaller body of mistakes – hardly even worth mentioning, really) and comes into organizations with a wealth of hard won, in-the-trenches experience to help them move from agility as a theoretical concept to an actual experience baked into the DNA of a company’s software development efforts, project portfolio management, strategic planning, and beyond.
Phil is currently the Senior Consultant at Integrity Inspired Solutions, a lean software development consulting company owned by Travis Dietz.
