Ian is the Chief Scientist at SAFe Gold Partner Ivar Jacobson International. He was the first SAFe Fellow, and one of the first SPCTs, in Europe where he has helped certify over 1000 SPCs. His deep knowledge of Agile and his vast experience leading large-scale transformations have given him a exceptionally well-rounded understanding of what it takes to succeed with SAFe. He has even contributed the framework via the SAFe guidance article, Right-Sizing Features for SAFe Program Increments. In his long career he has provided advice to many companies in every area of software development from entertainments to finance to telecoms to aerospace and is currently excited about helping to use SAFe to build the world’s largest radio telescope. So if you see him just ask about the Square Kilometre Array.
