Donald "Mark" Haynes

I'm a renaissance man trapped in a specialist's body. I started as a biologist and that's why I became an IT guy. I love science but it doesn't pay the bills. I've been an IT professional for many years. I used to be a software developer with an elegant language for a more civilized age. I became a Quality Assurance guy because it's better to give than receive. I have been a process improvement specialist because it's easier to negotiate with a terrorist than a Methodologist. But lately, I've been working as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach. I have drunk the Kool-Aid and it tastes good. Agile is a philosophy, not a methodology. In interviews, people often ask how long you've been agile? My answer is always. I just didn't know what it was called before.
