I’m John Clapham an independent coach, trainer, and consultant, specialising in DevOps and Agile. Cotelic is my company, created to allow me to provide consulting services and work with trusted partners.
My passion is helping teams build great products, creating environments and systems which are effective, productive and enjoyable to work in. I have broad experience as an engineer and lead, gained creating web and enterprise applications in publishing, telecommunications, commerce, defence and public sector arenas. My forays into Scrum, kanban and lean are fueled by coffee, lego and Bristol’s frequent inclement weather.
I’m a member of the Scrum Alliance, a Certified Scrum Professional, Scrum Master and Product Owner.
I’m often asked to write and talk about the things I do and experience. This talk, “The Reluctant Change Agent’s Guide” is typical of my style, for details of my talks take a look at my speaking section.
I’m one of the creators of the Experience DevOps Workshop.
I’m one of the organisers of a South West Agile group, the Bath Scrum User Group.
