Allen Wrinkle - Resume'


To leverage 27 years of experience delivering IT solutions and an extensive education to deliver higher quality hands-on Agile Coaching and Project Management to a few key clients.  Willing to travel.  One of the few people with PMP, PMI-ACP(Agile Certified Practitioner), and CSM (Certified Scrum Master)


As part of the project team, if the situation demands, fully willing to fill other roles on the team including creating BI(Business Intelligence) dashboards, SQL data conversion/data validation, business analysis, test plan creator, data transformations, training.  I’ve just about done it all.

Open to Corp to Corp arrangements only.  Full-time,  part-time,  short-term, long-term, as-needed.  On-site or telecommute (at a lower rate) available.

Uniquely compete in two ways:

(1)    Price 

(2)    Flexibility – I want to be the resource buffer IT and business departments call to step in, complete tasks or projects, then step away until needed again(unless full-time is needed).  This is another way to save because in the real world, work comes in waves.  I only want to work when you have a lot to get done. 

Flexibility also comes in to play with the breadth of types of work I can do.  It is difficult to find one person who can do as many types of things as I will do.  This saves on transition of resource costs.

I want to be the first person you think of when you have something that needs to be done RIGHT, ASAP.

Potential Roles

IT Project Manager/Agile Coach/Scrum Master

After having been a PMP for over 11 years and also being both PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Professional) and CSM (Certified Scrum Master), I am uniquely qualified to both strategically kick projects off on the right path or step in to get them back on track.  Even part-time I can add significant value to any project in a more cost-effective way.  I specialize in balancing the Agile approach of delivering value quickly with the roadmap/fiscal responsibility required by traditional approaches.  I know how to communicate across business and IT and know how to keep focused on high-value deliverables and getting around road-blocks.
