Colin Deady

Expert Overview

Colin is Head of Product and Innovation for Capita Application Services. He helps cross-functional geographically separated teams discover their own agility and ways of collaboration.

Colin is a BDD practitioner and Shift Left advocate: he enables teams to transition from old-school manually intensive approaches to Agile delivery, emphasising value discovery and the importance of constant communication between all stakeholders.

Previously Colin ran a BDD practice for Capita enabling the iterative delivery of working software that meets needs, expectations and requirements. His teams would continuously track against a desire for Zero-Known Defects: they did not maintain defect lists; they produced working systems.

While Colin’s degree was Environmental Science what he really learnt was crtitical thinking. This led him into a career in software testing for the first 15 years post-university.

Colin talks about agility, BDD and ZKD at conferences across the UK.
