Yohan De Silva

Yohan De Silva

Yohan De Silva
ICT Management & Agile Specialist on a quest for human progress
IT Delivery Portfolio Manager, University of Adelaide

I am an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Management specialist and I have played a diverse set of functions from Consulting, Business Analysis, Testing, .NET Development to Project Management over the last decade.

Over the last 5 or so years I have been exploring and learning Agile ways of working and Scrum Mastery. I believe that the resilience, responsiveness, inspection & adaption and the radical transparency offered by 'doing-agile' and 'being-agile' are absolutely essential to tackle the complex and wicked problems we are currently facing in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Currently all of my effort is focused on building better self-organising teams and challenging organisations to be more responsive to the market and nimble (see? I didn't use Agile or Scrum in that sentence!).

I also have a passion for communicating knowledge and education - so you may find me delivering lectures after hours at University of South Australia every now and then (around Project Management, IT Procurement and SAP)!
