ABOUT THE BLOGGER
Phillip Cave is an SDE on the Windows Embedded Automotive team. Phillip joined Windows Embedded in 2011 as a Lean/Agile consultant to begin guiding Windows Embedded on the transformation to a Lean/Agile delivery model.
Before joining Windows Embedded as an FTE in January 2012, Phillip consulted with many groups throughout Microsoft to show them how to implement Lean and Agile delivery models. Prior to consulting at Microsoft, Phillip has been fortunate to have been actively involved in applying Lean thinking to software and systems delivery within his 22 years in the software industry. He has enjoyed many roles over that time as a software engineer, project manager and executive.

Phillip took his variety of experiences and has been providing business and process consulting for organizations within Microsoft as well as other companies since 2007.
Phillip holds a bachelor’s degree in information systems from the University of Washington. Originally from Massachusetts, Phillip enjoys the climate and vast outdoor opportunities of the Seattle area that include hiking, rowing crew and skiing.

Simplicity. Why do we, in general, get so hung up on getting stuff done?
There are a few things that I wish everyone could experience. One of them is driving on the autobahn in a Porsche 911 at over 200km/hour (or, if you are like my colleague Dave Kelley, an Audi R8). If that wish came true, then I would not be stuck behind slow drivers in the fast lane. Just because the speed limit “suggests” 65 or 75 does not mean I want to be behind you wishing you would stop hogging the far-left passing lane. (The key word is PASSING, and I mean pass within the next hundred feet, NOT miles; pass and move over, don’t police me. Thus, I love the autobahn. Germans know how to drive.)
Another wish is for all people in the software world to experience living and succeeding at a product company startup.
