I’m Charlie Rudd, CEO of SolutionsIQ, an Agile company. I’m interested in learning better and better ways to unleash the power of teams by applying Agile management principles and practices throughout the enterprise.

Agile is a pointer to a waste-intolerant, performance-driven culture obsessed with the pursuit of excellence. What business would not want some of that?
