Sarah Stewart - Headshot

Sarah L. Stewart, SPC, CSP-SM, CSP-PO, CSM, CSPO

Sarah is a Senior Technical PM, Agile Coach, and consultant. She helps organizations, from individual teams all the way up to the enterprise level, adopt Agile/Lean practices and frameworks. She works as a coach, trainer, mentor, and writer. Sarah holds current certifications from Scaled Agile (Scaled Agile consultant) and the Scrum Alliance (certified scrum professional as both a Scrum Master and Product Owner).

She started her career as a software engineer at Microsoft shortly after getting her BA in Computer Science. After 15 years in engineering she caught the “Agile bug” and went into consulting. She’s served in every major role on an Agile team (engineer, manager, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Coach), and is adept in coaching on XP practices and how to apply them to SAFe and DevOps, particularly at a technical level. She believes in taking a pragmatic approach to Agile adoption: learn the methodologies and frameworks and then adapt them to fit the specific organization’s requirements, but without wavering from the methodology’s central values and principles. She teaches from experience, as she’s been in the trenches herself many times.

Sarah has managed a large-scale Agile transformation at Microsoft and is currently coaching at T-Mobile.
