Amazing things Paul's made
Having managed a series of massive IT projects, from Universal Credit to Maersk, I was fed up of the way Agile seemed to be degenerating into a series of squabbles that 'my method's better than yours'. I decided to pitch the idea of an education product that was method agnostic but which taught the real principles underpinning product and software development - not as some kind of 2-day training, but as practical work-based learning.

Plenty of people were convinced that I'd need a team of academics and the best part of a decade to do it. Instead, the VFQ team researched and wrote 20 books in 2 years, producing original case studies, activities and and exercises to embed practical work-based learning.

Today VFQ is used in Credit Suisse, Tesco, Maersk, the DWP, DFIF and many other organisations. It has even been accredited by the BCS and is now their Agile Practitioner Qualification. It is both a commercial and academic success.
