This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See Ranger Index (Who is Who?) for more details.

Who are you?Barry Paquet ALM Ranger

I am an ALM practice Director (West Coast) for InCycle Software and Entrepreneur (think Micro ISV). I’m a product management junkie, agile advocate, and SAFe consultant.  As Director, I’m fortunate to lead a team of highly talented experts that help organizations and development teams realize the benefits of a fully integrated ALM platform with Visual Studio and TFS. As a consultant, I am eager to help organizations not only transition to agile, but also scale agile across the enterprise and embrace “business” agility. On weekends I mascaraed as an athlete, experienced coach and power shopper. More than anything, I am a lucky husband and proud father.

What makes you tick?

Smart people (they help me realize how little I know). College football and 7:00 AM weekend minor hockey practice. KitKats.

Where do you live?

Good question. Currently split between Montreal, QC and Seattle WA. I guess you could say I travel a lot.

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

I love team work and contributing to the community. If I can help people be successful --- then that is what I want to do!

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?

I’m being indoctrinated as a Ranger based on my contribution to SAFe and TFS support. That’s in my wheelhouse.
