Scrum Master at Apollo Group
Phoenix, Az 85040
Scrum Master facilitating database development teams in an Agile Scrum environment (~40 hrs/week for ~13 months to date). In my first few weeks at Apollo, I helped create two scrum teams from a pool of DB resources; provided training and guided them to work within the scrum framework--holding stand ups and planning/review meetings, establishing a velocity, and continuing to inspect and adapt each iteration. They are very successful and seen as the standard which other teams in the organization should strive to reach. I also coach other Scrum Masters and their teams, provide training and workshops, and am leading the establishment of an Agile Center for Excellence so we can scale our adoption of Agile throughout the organization.
Scrum Master at Sage
Scottsdale, Az 85258
June 2010-September 2011
Full time (~40/wk/14 months) scrum master for teams working on updates to the core product (SalesLogix) as well as the new Mobile app, and SDK for customization. I transitioned from a team member to scrum master in June 2010 and facilitated the team's move to a more streamlined scrum approach, where before they were working in a 'scrummerfall' manner. Under my tutelage, the teams adopted task boards, ran more efficient and productive stand ups, planning and review meetings, and were each able to establish a velocity--something management did not believe was possible. The company did not have an Agile PMO, so I acted as the bridge between the scrum teams and PMO as well when there were issues with delivery timing, etc.
My specialty is herding cats and corralling chaos with diplomacy and flexibility to manage and facilitate deliverables--all while smiling.
