About Us

Our Mission

Founded in October 2016, Tactec’s goal is to help organizations reach their full potential using disciplined agile and value stream management. Our tagline, “Focus on Value at Velocity,” says it all, we want to help every person, team, and business focus on delighting their customer by bringing value to their stakeholders as soon as possible.  Our mission statement is to be a world-class people-first leading provider of continuous learning and improvement, achieving true business agility and transformation for our clients.

After working on extensive portfolios, programs, and products for fortune 500 global organizations such as Vodafone Global, Air France, Cathay Pacific, IBM, Heathrow and many others, Brent Reed wanted to leverage his experience to support medium and large business transitions to true business agility.  Brent and his team have created and grown Tactec’s worldwide education center (TEC), www.mytactec.com, including in-person and remote agile adoption and transformation services.   

Tactec uses state-of-the-art learning and digital tools to support the transition to true business agility and is the gold standard in training and certification as a Premier PMI Partner.  Invested in the continued evolution and innovation in Disciplined Agile, DevOps and Value Stream Management as both publisher of several articles, a recent book, and an active member, advisor and developer of PMI DA Board, PMI Community of Practices for Value Stream Consultant, DA Coach and DA Instructors.
