About Rob

My name is Rob and I’ve had an interesting journey in my career.

I started out as a software tester before becoming an Engineering Manager and then a Vice President in HR. Now I help managers in tech companies achieve agility in high performing teams.

I’ve scaled agile, reduced release cycles, coached and mentored managers, systematised development processes, trained the trainers, built strong consistent management procesesses, owned corporate communication and helped many people succeed in their career.

I started Cultivated Management to help others transition from being a maker to being a manager. I also didn’t want to end up like Big Bad Pete. I’ve always tried my hardest to be the best manager I can be. I’m still learning and trying and sharing these insights on this blog.
