Strasz Spotlight On: Ken White, Scrum Master and Fire Chief

2021-10-15T13:49:02-04:00

Ken White is a Scrum Master for one of our Agile development teams. He’s also our Production Support Operations Manager for the same customer. I don’t believe combining these roles is a practice unique to Strasz. What really sets Ken apart from most others is, he is also currently the Fire Chief for the Liberty Corner Volunteer Fire Department. So, it goes without saying that Ken has both an educational background and practical experience to bring teams of people together with a high likelihood of success. We’ve all heard of the chicken and egg paradox. So was the fire department the chicken and his college degree the egg? Or vice versa?

There’s No Crying in Baseball … or Software Development

I’ve been a developer for over 25 years, working as a consultant for large and small companies. I knew quite a bit, had seen it all, and knew how to get my job done efficiently. At least that’s what I thought before I joined Strasz. The largest professional existential crisis I’ve had to face in my career was when I realized how much I didn’t know. Life kicked open the door to a vast room that I didn’t know existed. Fabulous. Imposter Syndrome, meet John. I had two options – continue along and close my eyes to reality or dust off my notebook, roll up my sleeves and start educating myself.
