Banding Together a Coalition of the Willing

Colleen Kirtland is passionate about expanding agility beyond the boundaries of technology. She’s currently Assistant Vice President of Emerging Technology for Pacific Life.

Kirtland fosters the idea of “the coalition of the willing” saying, “It’s amazing what you can do when you see willingness and desire in people.” She has applied her own passion to understanding complex, adaptive systems as the place she experienced the most growth. Colleen’s contributions to the community extend outside the agile community and into enhancing the lives and education of underserved high schoolers.

Kirtland’s words of wisdom: “Find who you really are and roar.”
