Tim Miller is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rally Software. He joined Rally in 2003 to transform the way organizations solve problems with technology by using Agile and Lean practices. He steered the company to its current position as a Forrester-recognized Agile leader in both Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and in Project Portfolio Management (PPM). Rally was also named a leader in Gartner’s ALM Magic Quadrant.
Tim is focused on making Rally Software a great company. With a combination of personal humility and competitive drive, he draws out the best from a carefully selected leadership team while maintaining an unwavering vision for Rally’s success.
He led Rally to its prestigious place as one of the best places to work in the U.S. In 2012, Rally was named Fortune Magazine’s No. 8 Great Place to Work® (“Best Medium-Sized Workplaces”), and the Wall Street Journal’s No. 18 “Next Big Thing”. Over the past few years, Rally has been honored three times as a Best Place to Work by Outside magazine and one of the best companies to work for in Colorado every year since 2006.
Tim is distinguished by his servant leadership style, which defines Rally’s culture and is core to building highly effective and collaborative teams. Rally’s culture of innovation, collaboration, transparency, and individual empowerment serve as the lifeblood of the business and are keys to its competitive edge.
Before Rally, Tim spent four years as CEO of Avitek (which was acquired and became BEA's highly successful Portal Development Group) and then served as Vice President of BEA's Accelerated Development Centers.
Tim holds a master’s degree in Management Science and Information Systems and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder, as well as an MBA from Arizona State University.
When he is not at the helm of Rally, Tim can often be found steering a sailboat. In 2001, he took a sabbatical and sailed across the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean with his wife and two daughters.
