About Me

I’m Bret Carmichael. I work in information technology, at a Fortune 100 Company. As a change agent, I help to transform organizational culture and software delivery practices. I love learning.

In this blog, I write about technology and data privacy. I advocate responsible practices for casual technology users to protect themselves online. I also write about organizational culture. I believe that, empowered employees are critical to a company’s success and longevity; made possible through meaningful, personal connections and trust.


Transformation and Agility

The ability for companies to inspect, adapt, and adjust is imperative in today’s economy. I lead initiatives that transform organizational culture and practices.

  • Lean Management principles, practices, processes, and tools
  • Agile software development
  • DevOps and Continuous Integration
Design Thinking

Design Thinking

I facilitate Design Thinking workshops that enable innovation for teams large and small. Using tools like brainstorming, prototyping, and rapid experimentation, I help teams create products that find the center of desirability, viability, and feasibility.

I also help teams solve problems with Lean tools, like Value Stream Mapping and Root Cause Problem Solving.

Brand Experience Design

Brand Design

A brand is a feeling. Brand loyalty is achieved by creating positive feelings about a brand.

I apply human centered design practices to help businesses create their identities. This includes voice, imagery and iconography, colors, typography, and websites.



Serving local government is a great way to give back to the community. I donate some of my time to the City of Dover, New Hampshire.
