Rod Claar is a software development coach and instructor with broad experience in Design Patterns, Test Driven Development, Scrum and Agile methodologies. He is a specialist in coordinating large teams and large projects to increase return on investment through the use of Agile principles and practices. Rod also has extensive experience teaching and coaching teams to achieve their goals. He believes that team building is at the heart of this success. Teams get more done than the same individuals working independently. Rod teaches that team building and team effectiveness are built on communication. Communication at all levels of the organization. Communication of goals and rationale. Communication of success and failure.
Rod coaches that in software development, second only to the team and effective communication is quality. Quality that is built-in and never sacrificed. Quality starts with requirements. Requirements have to be understood through business or customer statements that describe the value to be returned rather than a definition of the proposed solution. Quality continues as the team executes the agile practices tailored to their situation. The quality of the process is always pushed higher.
