Jenny Tarwater

Agile Transformation Coach

Jenny is an Transformation Coach working with large organizations to achieve their outcomes, generally using Agile values, principles, and practices. Jenny’s default stance is to put people and culture first and be curious about how they impact the overall system and practices.

Jenny has over 23 years of experience bringing business teams, technical teams, sponsors and customers together to reliably deliver large-scale development projects with her disciplined approach of cultivating success and growth in people, process, and products. Jenny has a passion for driving the adoption and understanding of Agile values, principles and practices, and her endless motivation drives her involvement in cultivating the “small company start-up culture” across organizations large and small. Jenny is a kinetic leader, partner, and consummate student who brings enthusiasm and awareness to projects and keeps teams focused and delivering success in rapidly evolving and dynamic environments. Jenny is an international speaker with a passion for helping other coaches and trainers level up their game. She is Program Director for Women in Agile’s Launching New Voices.

In her spare time, you can find Jenny listening to live music; at a pool, river, lake or ocean; and spending time with teenager daughter Raegan, Shih Tzu Pennie, and husband Terry in Kansas City.
