Bruce Eckfeldt is a consultant, coach, author, and speaker on organizational development and performance management. Originally an architect, he was a pioneer in the use of computer-aided design and 3D modeling. He transitioned to software design and development converting his spatial problem-solving skills to informational architecture and user experience design.

Seeing the need for a more fast-paced and innovative approach to technology development, Bruce was an early adopter of Extreme Programming (an early Agile/Lean software methodology). He advanced the field as an early contributor to the Agile Conference and as the founder of Cyrus Innovation in 2003, one of the first Agile/Lean development consulting firms.

After more than a decade of developing products and coaching companies adopting Agile/Lean practices, such as Extreme Programming, Scrum, Kanban, and other Lean methodologies, Bruce sold Cyrus in 2014 to focus on broader organizational development initiatives.

Today, Bruce works with startups and high-growth companies to develop business and operational strategy, talent planning, and performance coaching. His expertise includes growing leadership teams, planning and developing middle management, accelerating high-performance individuals, and coaching teams to higher performance.
