Ed Ballou is a storm chaser. From physical storms to metaphorical ones, Ed helps teams and organizations orient, assess, and chase down the storms that wreak havoc on agility. His development roots gave strong footing for a career as a Scrum Master for nearly a decade. He's sort of from the Midwest and is new to the Twin Cities, serving as a Scrum Master for COUNTRY Financial. In addition to coaching, Ed also loves gamification - table top games, video games, and finding parameters of the "storms" through metrics.
