I help optimize team performance to accelerate your product delivery.

Who I Am

Hello! My name is Jim Sparks. I’m a seasoned professional Scrum Master and Kanban trainer dedicated to helping teams achieve excellence in their product delivery journey. With years of experience and a passion for coaching, I’ve cultivated a deep understanding of the Scrum and Kanban ways of working. I am a huge proponent of scientific thinking and a continuous improvement culture.

I offer a very pragmatic and genuine approach that is rooted in delivering value and fostering a culture of continuous improvement. I won’t be the one holding your hand and telling you what you want to hear. I believe in going beyond the buzzwords and focusing on what truly matters – getting customer feedback and optimizing the delivery process to exceed expectations.

I’ve worked with teams and organizations from start-up size to upwards of 55,000 global associates. I’ve supported multiple teams that are distributed around the world. I offer public and private training in Kanban and Agile Kata. I make it my mission to equip teams with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed.

I really, really enjoyed the ASPK class. Jim’s enthusiasm for the topic is evident in the passion and excitement he puts into teaching it…this wasn’t a ‘read the slides and take a test’ approach…my aim in signing up for the class was to boost my confidence in scaling Kanban. Jim did everything he could to ensure I had that confidence and I am so grateful!

The course provided a solid yet easy-to-understand approach to the core metrics and ideas of Kanban. I’m excited to put these into practice immediately with my teams…Jim was easygoing, kept a good pace, shared easy-to-understand concepts, and provided great real-world examples to keep these concepts fresh in my memory.

Jim was great. He was able to adapt the material to our class size and customize the content to account for active participation in a small group setting…the pace of the class was great…Jim was very personable and accommodating and took the time to drill down into the topics participants were interested in. Thanks for a great 3 days.
