After starting his career at Anderson Consulting in the late 80s and early 90s, he moved to Van Kampen Funds, a subsidiary of Morgan Stanley, where he used early adaptive methods to define and build new software products and migrate off their legacy systems. Following that, he joined a private startup consulting firm of 40 employees. As IT Director, he helped it grow to a global public company of 1,700.

In 2008, Drew began an enterprise Agile consulting company, Fast Frontier.

In 2011, he formally partnered with Dean Leffingwell to roll out the first iteration of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Today, 80% of Fortune 100 companies have SAFe-trained practioners.
