Drawing on her successful Startup background and an MBA from Kellogg Northwestern University, Deema helps large established institutions create the environment to shape disruption with business agility transformation. She started her journey with Agile in the early 2000’s, embraced agility as a way of being while she held roles in Product Management, goto market Strategy, to pre-IPO turn around leader. Agile was the common thread in these adventures. Deema transitioned to a transformation consulting journey, where she led some of the largest transformations to business agility and lean agile portfolios in the Financial Services and Insurance space. Today, Deema works at Scaled Agile, Inc., the exclusive certifying entity for the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe), as an advisor and SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT). “Connecting in communities can change people’s lives” Deema is passionate about organizing agile communities for good, she helped co-found the Women in Agile organization non profit, South Florida Agile, and contributor with Lean Agile US. She has been fortunate to share learnings though publishing blogs, speaking at the key Agile conferences, and most recently in contributing to a book on business agility.
