Rachel Davies is as an independent coach and facilitator in the UK. She is passionate about agile software development because it can increase the chance of success in the face of complex problems and recognizes that teams are made-up of individuals rather than resources.

Rachel specialises in XP and Scrum flavours of agile and advocates the use of frequent retrospectives to help teams adapt their process to their context. She feels it is important to share success stories, lessons learned and connect with others using agile techniques. For this reason Rachel puts much of her spare time into the organization of agile events and work for the Agile Alliance.

Rachel is the chair of the Agile Alliance
