Dave Prior has been leading technology projects and teaching individuals and teams how to manage their work for over 20 years. During his time working in IT, Dave has managed projects, programs, PMOs and portfolios and he has been working with Agile methodologies since 1999. Because of his experience in traditional project management and the struggles he faced in transitioning to Agile, Dave’s approach focuses heavily on finding a better way to help those who are making the transition from a traditional approach (Waterfall) over to Agile.
Dave is an active volunteer for the Scrum Alliance and he also writes and creates podcasts for a number of leading project management focused websites.
In addition to his work leading programs and projects, Dave has extensive experience training Information Technology leaders and coaching organizations in managing projects using both an Agile and a traditional approach. His work as an educator and speaker has provided him with the opportunity to lecture and teach classes in the U.S., Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Central America.
Dave is a CST, a PMP and an ACP. He received his MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas. He lives and works in Oklahoma.
