Amr Elssamadisy is a software development practitioner who helps his clients build better software that is more valuable to their organizations. Amr and his colleagues at Gemba Systems deliver immediate and lasting results for clients needing to build software systems better, faster, and more reliably.
Amr's technical background and experience allows him to appreciate the problems of and support development teams 'in the trenches'. At the same time, he realizes that most problems - even in software - are people problems, and therefore are not solved by tools and technology.

In the chaos of the real world, he and Gemba deliver on the promise of lean and agile software development.
