Hi, my name is Kevin Jackson and I am the author of these Soft Skill Patterns. I hope you find them as useful as I do.

I am an agile-certified Software Development Manager with two decades of experience working in the financial services industry. During this time, I have performed most software development practices including coding (mainly .net), analysis, testing, support, project management, architecture, stakeholder management and team leadership.

I get a buzz out of collaboratively creating simple solutions to complex problems that my users love to use. My approach is to: focus on the goal, reduce the waste, work together and iterate. And if that doesn't work, then at least I will have learnt something new!


I really hope you can help the continuous improvement of the patterns by leaving your comments and suggestions via Twitter:
