Improver Spotlight - Ty Crockett

Our Team

Meet Ty Crockett, Director of Consulting. He does both training and consulting for Improving. As a trainer, he teaches a wide range of classes from Scrum.org courses to business analysis. As a consultant, he does everything from the Scrum master role all the way to executive coaching and training. 

Ty has been an Improver for about 6 years, but he was familiar with Improving long before.

“I was very attached to the user groups that Improving hosted,” Ty shares. “As a matter of fact, my old mentor, Gary McCants, is an Improver. Eventually I wasn’t really valuable to my company anymore because I kind of worked myself out of the job. Which is awesome, but I decided I wanted to go do something different. They didn’t want me to leave but I wasn’t being fulfilled with the lack of work.”

"I think our really huge differentiator [at Improving] is the people. There is no gathering that I know of with such awesome talent and combined with our caring individuals and our go get it nature, this is a rare mix," --Ty Crockett, Director of Consulting

“I didn’t think I was actually good enough to work at Improving. When Gary heard that I was looking he asked me to come and have a beer with him. And from that moment on I wanted to be an Improver.”

Ty spends a lot of time traveling for conferences and to teach classes, so he has come in contact with numerous companies.

“I think our really huge differentiator is the people. There is no gathering that I know of with such awesome talent and combined with our caring individuals and our go get it nature, this is a rare mix. Of course our leadership gathered the people, and made it attractive for those people to be here, but other places have really great leaders, too. It is the people that make the difference.”

“Then with me being in the hospital recently, the amount of people that came to visit and how much time they spent with me and how much time they spent with my recovery and people taking me to doctor’s appointments and doing all this crazy stuff for me and my family. That really dials back to who we have working here. This is why it’s Improving.”

Ty brings a lot of talent and laughter to the Improving family, and we’re glad to have had him for the past 6 years.
