Independence: Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.
But all good things must come to an end…and then on to more good things!
So, starting October 15th, I will be making my foray into independent consulting, operating as the business "odbox". There are a multitude of reasons for this, some of which are even sane ;) …but mostly it's the desire to live a more nomadic life for a while and accelerate my learning and experiences around Business/Software Organizational Development.
I plan on continuing to coach organizations and teams on lean/agile principles and practices as well as round out some training materials. Also, I plan to keep speaking as that has been a great way to share what I've learned from practicing as well as a great way to meet so many new interesting people!
More excitingly, I'm also beginning to plan a professional "walkabout" that will hopefully start mid-summer 2013 and last about a year. My goal is to be able to practice with or shadow folks that I would not otherwise have the opportunity to. Of course I gotta keep whatever lights I may have on, so I will be weaving this in with coaching and training…but, if you've got a spare couch, bed or barn lemme know ;)
