Our People

Jim Brosseau

Jim is a well respected speaker, facilitator, educator and thought leader in his field. He’s been working with teams for almost 3 decades and is passionate about educating people about the role that relationships and interpersonal friction have in the success or failure of projects.

He started his career in Technology and participated in a number of large scale projects where he realized that conventional project management tools and the mantra of “on time, on budget” did not adequately determine project success. Jim has personally worked with more than 100 organizations in the past 10 years with a goal of improving personal and team effectiveness.

Today he leads a team of 8 facilitators delivering various versions of this philosophy to over 1000 people each year.

Jim has been involved with the BCIT Bachelor of Technology program, mentored students at SFU Surrey and the Vancouver Board of Trade’s Leaders of Tomorrow program, acted as a mentor in the New Ventures BC competition, and has been on the Business Advisory Board of the Advanced Systems Institute of BC. For 5 years, he volunteered in a Community Education role with the Crisis Intervention & Suicide Prevention Centre of BC.

“Jim is a true professional. His expertise in project management is outstanding, but perhaps more important is his commitment to his clients and his own personal learning. Working with Jim is a pleasure for me – and will be beneficial for you.” – Kevin Eikenberry, Owner, The Discian Group

Jim has published numerous technical articles, and has presented at major conferences and local professional associations. He is the author of

  • Software Teamwork: Taking Ownership of Success,
  • Practical Agility: Being Agile Rather than Doing Agile and
  • Jounce!: Crafting a Resilient Life in an Increasingly Chaotic World.

Over time we have worked with a number of professionals and organizations that have complementary services and products to ours, with matching viewpoints and perspectives.

They recognize that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution for your challenges, and they have developed a particular expertise that may be a good fit for your current issues.
