Bob Marshall has been at the forefront of Digital Business for more than twenty years.
Bob has deep technical knowledge, combined with unparalleled understanding of the dynamics of business, and extensive experience in helping people realise their true potential.
Throughout, he has consistently inspired people to improve their effectiveness – along with the effectiveness of their teams and organisations. He spent three years as founder and CEO of Familiar, Europe’s UK’s first one hundred percent Agile software house and digital consultancy start-up, serving major Digital Business clients in Telecoms, Finance, Travel, Media, and eBusiness.
He has for the past fifteen years headed Falling Blossoms – a Digital Business Consultancy advising organisations how best to go about applying Digital to achieving their business objectives.
Previous to Familiar, he held the role of Senior Architect with Sun Microsystems’ UK Java Center, and before that fulfilled many Digital-related roles, including Digital Product Manager, Digital Business Manager and Consultant, and Digital Solutions Architect. He has also held general management, consultancy, systems administration and development roles, as well as roles in operations, marketing and sales.
With a keen focus on business value, able to de-risk client projects and provide guaranteed outcomes, most of his assignments now revolve around working as a trusted advisor or interim executive to ambitious, growing Digital Business organisations.
He is the co-founder of the RIghtshifting movement, and the creator of the Marshall Model (Dreyfus for the organisation), as well as Prod•gnosis, Emotioneering and FlowChain; the enterprise-wide approach to developing software-intensive products and services.
He has also pioneered the application of psychology and psychotherapy techniques to Digital Business and Digital Business Transformation.
