Daniel Gagnon is a senior Enterprise Lean/Agile Advisor, Coach and Trainer with close to three decades of diversified consulting, training, project management and IT experience. For the past ten years, he has specialized in Agile at Enterprise scale, initially within the Enterprise Project Management Office at TD Bank Group and more recently as Enterprise Agile Practice Lead for Desjardins from February 2017 to July 2018 before joining PMC as a senior consultant and instructor.
Over the years, he has provided training to over 1,200 individuals in Scrum, DA, SAFe, PMI Montreal’s ACP prep course as well as a bespoke 40-hour agile project management class at McGill University. He describes himself as a passionate servant leader and ethical disruptor.
Daniel is primarily involved in strategic, wide-spectrum transformative and evolutionary assignments involving a triathlon approach (Business, Delivery and Operations working together as a single athlete) as opposed to siloed efforts where one department alone is trying to achieve local optimization. In terms of specific approaches, he is a systems thinker with an overall approach that is “Method Agnostic”.
His motto is “You can’t buy your way out of the need to think, and you can’t think your way out of the need to experiment.”
