Kenny's background is rooted in the object-oriented technology community. He started as a Smalltalk developer on a NASA-funded project back in 1985 and developed the first blackboard expert system outside of LISP. In 1988 he was fortunate to join ParcPlace Systems, a start-up company formed as a Xerox PARC spin-off, whose charter was to generate object-oriented technology out of the research labs for worldwide release. As a Smalltalk development consultant with many different organizations in the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s, Kenny was an early adopter of agile practices. His first use of Scrum was in 2000 for developing bioinformatics software.

His multifaceted background gives Kenny the ability to understand (and explain) Scrum and its implications equally well from multiple perspectives right from the development team to the executive board.
