James Birnie Lead Consultant ThoughtWorks

I started working in software delivery in the late 1990s when TDD was something you studied but never did and a pipeline was something for carrying oil. In 2005 I joined a startup and started to feel I could really make a difference. After nearly 10 years, several new approaches and an Agile transformation I moved on to a career in consultancy with ThoughtWorks. Since joining ThoughtWorks I’ve consulted in various organisations at various levels of Agile maturity all seeking, to a greater or lesser extent, some form or organisational change to go with the product that we deliver.
