Mark Richards

Mark’s contribution to Scaling Agile in complex organizations is almost unparalleled. He has worked with numerous Enterprise customers across most industries both in Australia and across the globe. Mark’s expertise and results are anchored in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), but are strengthened by his passion, depth of knowledge and his unique outcomes focused facilitation style.

Since attending the inaugural SPC course in 2012, Mark was one of the first to achieve the SPCT certification in 2014. He continues to develop value-adding techniques and advancements and was recently recognized as a SAFe Contributor for his work with program-level metrics. In 2017, he was recognised as a SAFe Fellow.

Whilst Mark is known for his ability to move seamlessly from a deeply technical discussion about DevOps pipelines and tooling to another about strategic initiatives and portfolio governance, at heart he is the Coaches’ Coach. He knows the true essence of great facilitation and is happiest as he helps clients develop their problem solving and continuous improvement skills to leave lasting and sustainable change.

A frequent presenter at conferences and meetups both locally and internationally, Mark is also the author of the blog “The Art of SAFe” and working on a book of the same name.
