Martin Kearns

Martin is a pioneer in the field of Agile, he was one of first three certified enterprise coaches in the world by the Scrum Alliance. He was also accredited as an Agile expert by Dr. Alistair Cockburn and has been a practitioner in Agile methods for over 12 years. His pragmatic approach and genuine thirst for personal growth is evident in his authentic stories and examples he uses to illustrate concepts in a training setting.

Recently, Martin has been examining the significance of Agile in becoming an operational mindset for the future of work. Now as the Chief Digital Officer he is focused on the synergy between partners, people and problems to generate the need for adaption. Through his work in contracting methods, Martin has designed cooperative partnerships in response to uncertainty. He has spoken at numerous Australian Conferences on this topic and his thought leadership has been recognised through his selection to speak at Scrum Alliance Global Gathering in Dublin.

Martin actively contributes to the Scrum community in Australia, being a director of Scrum Australia and frequent speaker at User Groups and Conferences. Martin is a co-author of the e-book Agile Transition (available through InfoQ), in which he and his co-author share their observations and conclusions about what is required when seeking to transition to an agile approach and the future of work.
