Hi, I’m Cristian. I'm a director of program management and an agile coach. I led Agile transformation in both Fortune 500 companies and startups in software development and data teams. My focus is help you learn and implement Agile methodologies efficiently and effectively: the Agile way.  

Cristian Dordea, Founder of The Agile Shop

Our Story


I'm an Agile Coach and Director of Program Management specialized in Agile Delivery in software development and data projects. Over the last 12 years, I worked in multiple tech roles like Quality Assurance, Business Analyst, Product Owner, Scrum Master, Project Manager, Program Manager and Release Train Engineer (RTE). I also consulted for some of the top corporations in automotive and entertainment including Ford, Chrysler, and FOX. Throughout my career, I invested in continuous learning by pursuing Agile delivery certifications including SAFe Practice Consultant (SPC), SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO).


As my career grew over the years, so did my exposure to different work environments and corporations. After helping 8 different corporations with their Agile Delivery challenges, I noticed 3 consistent gaps. 


First, most agile roles, especially Scrum Masters, had a lot of theoretical knowledge with a large focus on certifications, but were lacking hands-on practical application. Second, there was a lack of broad understanding of the multiple delivery methodologies and when to apply them. I saw many challenges like when it is better to apply traditional project management vs. Scrum vs. Kanban and how successfully apply them. Third, I noticed a growing interest among individuals to join the Agile delivery field in roles like Scrum Master, Agile Delivery Lead, or Agile Project Management, but many of them lacked the necessary experience and struggled with knowing where to start.


Due to these gaps, I’ve seen multiple projects fail across different corporations and industries, leaving individual contributors in these Agile delivery roles demotivated and higher-level managers frustrated. 


Solely focusing on certifications in the Agile Delivery field does not resolve these big gaps.

This is why I decided to combine my passion for learning, Agile Delivery and helping individuals grow to take on this big challenge. This is why the Agile Shop was created.
