Hello, and welcome! My name is Ken Power. I live in Galway on the west coast of Ireland and I work with teams and organizations all over the world.

I have held multiple leadership positions in technology organizations over the years. My current responsibilities include leading global, large-scale engineering organization transformations. I have been working with agile and lean methods since 1999. I have patents in virtualization and network management.

My day job is all about product and system design and development, organization leadership, and transformation leadership, mostly focused on large-scale engineering organizations. I also coach and mentor architects, engineers, engineering leaders, and transformation leaders to achieve their goals. My focus includes complex adaptive systems, sensemaking, flow-based development, software architecture, distributed systems, artificial intelligence, machine learning, strategy, technical debt, engineering management, and leadership. I have published widely on these topics, including winning IEEE Software Best Paper award for work on decision making in teams. This site has a full list of my publications, including books, journal papers, conference papers, magazine articles, and patents.

I also speak on these topics, and occasionally run workshops, at conferences around the world. You can find a list of past and upcoming events on this site.
