Scrum Mastery Pathway Guide, Nashville, USA

Joy defines me. My smile has become my trademark.


Who is Jeff Davis?

As a guide and advisor, I serve leaders and teams navigating an ever-changing landscape of complexity. Much like a compass and map, I help people become better oriented to their context so they might envision an attainable, desired outcome. As a co-creator in the journey, I help others cultivate mastery and generate inspiration through building character, creativity, and community.

As a coach and mentor, I enable other change agents through mental models such as: servant-leadership, systems thinking, ORGANIC agility, a product-over-project mindset, Better Value: Sooner, Safer, and Happier, storytelling, and more. I champion positive regard and blameless leadership within complex adaptive systems where experimentation and levels of self-awareness help us unlock innovative ways to deal with Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. We can become not just resilient, but anti-fragile (a better version of what we were before we experienced failure).

By facilitating workshops and other group decision-making events, I enable the levels of trust, respect, alternative thinking, resourcefulness, aspiration, tactful disruption, and wide-reaching coherence required to foster high-performing teams who consistently deliver measurable value.

Because there’s a rhythm to work and life, I also consider my role to be like a conductor or producer in the ways they help create satisfying musical experiences. By actively listening to the interactions of leaders and teams we can explore any unwanted dissonance, and then skilfully improvise our way into better ways of working (like adjusting musical notes, harmonies, dynamics, or tempo). Creating better outcomes for our customers through high-quality software, products, and services is made possible as we first compose agile-minded leaders who resonate a high-trust ecosystem which will amplify the skilled efforts of its self-managing teams.
