Hi – I’m Mike Burrows, good to meet you, thanks for coming
This is my personal blog and since March 1st 2011 the company blog of Positive Incline Limited. I offer consultancy, coaching, training and speaking, much of it as an associate of David J Anderson & Associates and Valtech.
In a career spanning aerospace, software tools, banking, energy and the public sector I’ve been a global development manager, IT architect and IT director. As a consultant I now help organisations evolve and transform at scale, taking a values-based approach to Lean, Kanban and Agile. I’m not your typical practices-centric Agile coach – I thrive on portfolio-scale problems and typically engage with leadership teams, helping them address the reality of how things work end-to-end, not just within teams. I’m also a regular speaker at international conferences and internal events.
I can help you manage more transparently, prioritise more effectively and deliver more predictably. I work on making leadership and learning integral to the way business is conducted at every level in your organisation, so that benefits continue to accumulate to the workforce, the wider organisation and its customers alike.
I’m well known in the Kanban community as an experienced practitioner, communicator and teacher, and for some notable contributions to the way Kanban is understood, taught and applied worldwide. I’m a member of the management board of LKU’s Accredited Kanban Training (AKT) program and on the advisory board of its Kanban Coaching Professional (KCP) program.
