Business Information:

JohnRoyle 2013 Over my 20+ year career I have been involved in virtually every aspect of IT and software development; From Budgeting and Vision through Planning, Design, and Development. I have had the pleasure to work for several fortune 500 companies as well as startup organizations and learned from their mistakes and successes along the way.

As a solutions architect and certified scrum professional (CSP), I have come to realize the benefit and clarity that comes from a user experience design approach and the benefits of building software using Agile methods.

As the Managing Director of IT Solutions I have had the added pleasure of building, collaborating, managing, mentoring and training teams in the art of software development. I have also been able to share my experience with other IT organizations to help them transform and re-define how they do business.

In contrast to my work in the business field, I also spent time working in the academic world teaching undergraduate students the value of “Object Oriented Analysis and Design” (OOAD) and providing Agile training for various groups.  Deep down I have a passion to share information and work with others to achieve common goals.  Teaching has provided me the opportunity to share what I have learned with others and also learn from them in the process.

Associations and Achievements:

I hold a Masters degree in Computer Science and Distributed Systems from Webster University and a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from Central Missouri State University.  I have also held and maintained various security clearances for my work on government projects.  In the Agile space I have completed my Scrum Master (CSM), Product Owner (CSPO) and Most recently I scrum professional (CSP) certifications.

Personal Information:

I was married in October 1993 to my wife, Lisa. We enjoy traveling and spending time with our two golden retrievers.  When time permits I play racquetball and enjoy quiet time cycling.  Some of my other passions include working with other leaders in the community to stay sharp on the latest trends in technology.  I also enjoy working with my hands on various household projects.
