Frank Ray

I’m Frank, a former C# .Net software developer and owner of Frank Ray Consulting, a consultancy that specialises in software requirements for agile development teams.

Remote, outsourced and offshore development is difficult to do well, and my time in software development teams, firstly as a hands-on developer and then as a business analyst, clearly showed me this.

I’ve shared my own personal experiences in many articles, the following ones being the most popular. I discovered that I am autistic in my mid-40โ€™s and learnt that itโ€™s not uncommon for engineers, which is why I write about it from time to time.

Large enterprises organisations are unable to achieve much of what conventional agile coaching espouses.

Agile development teams working in less-than-fully agile settings behave in some rather unhelpful ways.

Software requirements is a powerful enabler for teams struggling to thrive under an agile framework or approach.

Developers want to work in a way that maximises their effectiveness; avoiding blockers and frequent, unwanted interruptions/context-switching.

Tailoring the agile framework to accomodate organisational limitations is a pragmatic and highly effective approach.
