Mina has 10+ years of experience in designing, running, and scaling agile ways of working in various industries and functions including Financial Institutions, Start-ups, Government, Retail, Pharma, Marketing, Operations, HR, Public Policy, and Software Development.​

Some his experience since joining ADAPTOVATE includes:​

  • Designing a new scaled agile operating model and managing the change for the Marketing department of a big four Australian bank that was merging two sections. This resulted in breakdown of silos, reduced levels of hierarchy, 5x simplification of roles, and new career paths for growth. The merger was delivered through a disciplined change management and communication process to support employees on the journey​
  • Transforming the IT delivery team’s way of working, at one of Australia’s biggest health/life insurance providers, from waterfall to agile, resulting in the release of the CRM (Salesforce) MVP within 6 months from date of purchase​
  • Coaching a leading Australian FinTech start-up through its turnaround, resulting in alignment of goals from company down to individual teams’ goals, new cross functional teams for the Call Centre operations following the agile methodology, and common agile ways of working across the company within 3 months​
  • Helping an Australian government authority undergo a once-in-a-generation change as it transformed itself as the state’s regulator in a short timeframe (one year) set by the government. The organisation was setup for success to achieve the transformation goals through a common understanding of agile ways of working towards goals that have been aligned and cascaded to individual teams. Within 2.5 weeks, the transformation roadmap with Q1-Q4 objectives was created with input from senior execs and 70 staff were trained​
