Thompson Morrison

I have worn many hats.

My professional life has included doing strategic marketing and business development in the US and Asia. For fifteen years, I also ran a software company.

Over last four years I have also been leading Innovate Oregon as its Chief Evangelist. In this role I have been introducing to educators the mindsets and skillsets of Agile to help them in their journey to re-imagine education.

It was my time being an consultant in Asia that I learned the reality of the global competitive challenge. I moved to Asia in 1986. In the next twelve years I saw the the Asian economies being completely transformed, challenging the leadership of companies in market after market.

It was during my time running Fuse Insight, my software company, that I was first exposed to Agile. My development team used Extreme Programming (XP), one of the original Agile frameworks. They continually delivered software solutions faster than I could every hope. As I guided their work, I slowly learned why.

During my time as the Director of Corporate Development with OnlineNW, I led several initiatives that introduce Agile Management to different areas within the company and developed new models of Agile Training.

I am currently with with Ward Cunningham to explore new models for Meaning Making using his Federated Wiki. This work will become published as a book. We are using this model to empower the learning of students at Dayton.
