“As well as being a suburb analyst, Ade has been an influential instigator in the National Strategies transition from scrum to kanban, which has significantly improved our efficiency. Independently researching the latest thinking and the best kanban tools, his presentations at team and senior management level have inspired the whole programme to adopt kanban. Ade is a great guy to work with and will be an asset to any team.” ~ Sarah Jones, ThoughtWorks

“Ade joined Silk Route to work on a complex, multi-platform and multi-channel project. To add to the complexity, the project also spanned across three delivery partners and one client (Tesco). Both our team and the overall project benefitted greatly from the Agile practices and procedures that Ade put in place. He helped fine tune some areas where we’d become a bit more ‘laissez faire’. His documentation, user story management and interaction with partners and customers were exemplary. Moreover, Ade was a lovely colleague to have around – friendly, fun and always professional. I would highly recommend him.” ~ Sophie Neary, CIO, SilkRoute Global, UK

Ade not only can do that but he strategically thinks about what the commercial business requirement are. I have never worked with such a capable business aware agile savvy person.” ~ Robert Skinner, Director, SilkRoute UK Ltd

=============================

“I had the honour to work with Ade on an incrediblly complicated project where Ade had the almost impossible task of being the lead Analyst across four companies (Tesco, blinkbox, Splendid & SilkRoute), trying to manage relationships with clients and suppliers whilst trying to capture requirements from a stakeholder who refused to get engaged. Ade’s professionalism shone through in the end, and he managed to grapple a spiralling requirements backlog into a documented usecase repository. He worked tirelessly with both suppliers and clients never missing a beat. Ade also brings a fantastic enthusiasm for Agile development which really helped him deal with a fundamentally broken, waterfall client. Ade will be a great asset to any team and I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.” ~ Glyn Darkin, eCommerce Solutions Architect, SilkRoute UK Ltd (Tesco/blinkbox integration project)
