About The Panelists
: Brian Melville started his IT career as a Systems Engineer with EDS which introduced him to the Systems Development Life Cycle and Waterfall. In those mainframe days projects would sometimes last five to ten years. A few years later, at a conference in Utah, Brian was introduced to a concept that would revolutionize his approach to project management: “Smaller projects are ALWAYS more successful than larger projects.” For the last 25 years, Brian has been on a quest to discover the best ways to run projects, gather requirements, and change organizations. He is a Certified Scrum Master, Project Management Professional and is Prosci certified in Organizational Change Management.
Brian teaches Project Management, Agile, Organizational Change Management, and Business Analysis at UC Davis and the California Department of Technology. He stays current by consulting with government, healthcare, and banking clients. He recently established a new consulting group named Government BA which helps State departments successfully navigate the Project Approval Lifecycle (PAL). When he’s not working, you’ll likely find Brian hiking, playing strategy board games with his three grown sons, or babysitting his 2-year-old granddaughter.
Nancy Wright is an active instructor and speaking volunteer for PMI-SVC. Her courses include 1- and 2-day Agile Application workshops, Career Development speaking engagements, tips and tricks about Product Planning for Agile projects, and comparing waterfall and Agile approaches for key project management knowledge areas, roles, practices, artifacts, and organizational change management.
Nancy’s career has focused on project, program, portfolio, and strategic management within the health care and IT industries. Her Agile knowledge and skills have been honed through a variety of business experiences in both the private and public sectors, always with a focus on delivering positive and successful client outcomes.
Nancy is passionate about training and coaching the Agile/Scrum framework, developed through practical experience on enterprise-wide business/IT project implementations and enhanced through certifications and coaching contracts. Nancy considers herself a lifelong learner and holds many Agile certifications: CSM®, CSPO®, CSP-SM®, PMI-ACP®, SAFe SPC4, ICP-ACC, and CAL I. She teaches Agile workshops through Sacramento training organizations, emphasizing application and adoption with hands-on exercises. She’s licensed as a trained facilitator for The Agile FluencyTM Model, providing guided self-assessments to help teams determine their position on the Agile Fluency pathway and to develop recommendations for leadership regarding organizational investment opportunities to advance the application of Agile. In addition, Nancy’s PMP® certification and early experience following waterfall practices provide her with the unique ability to help others “bridge” the transformation and mindset shift required for successful Agile adoption.
