Helping IT Professionals Become More Agile Centric
Who We Are...
From our own experiences
Our journey to understanding the world of Agile and becoming an effective Scrum Master started with ourselves. After years of trial and error we began to document and refine the steps needed to be successful in today's economy
Our belief is that to be an effective Scrum Master you have to be aware of core knowledge base skills as well as the fundamental emotional intelligence skills.
In working in the industry we identified 3 major problems:
Lack of qualified professionals ready for the market
The Agile certifications alone are not comprehensive enough to fully grasp the role of a Scrum Master
Key technical & knowledge based skills to perform agile management
From the get go, Scrum Masters have to be able to use core tools in order fulfill their roles effectively
Essential soft skills that build an effective Scrum Master
Like any role, a sound understanding of how to manage and work with people is critical to success. Especially in the social role of an agile change agent
In realizing this, we decided to address the problem directly, by creating a space that would remedy these issues and enable quality & confident Scrum Masters.
With over 30 years of combined experience working across banking, insurance, software and retail industries, we have worked with many cross-functional diverse talented teams to deliver complex solutions. All honing our understanding of agile techniques that generate results.
Our goal with How To Scrum is to share the rich opportunities and techniques to encourage agile working teams. We share only what we believe to be the most effective and honest ideas / tips / knowledge that have served us well, with intentions that it too - will serve you !
