I’m a Scrum practitioner, coaching teams to agility and hyper-productive state. Passionate to help people grow.
I’ve been leading teams for over a decade now and lately been focusing on building hyper-productive teams. Some of the agile teams I’ve served have ranged between 40 to 60 team members, who worked in a distributed and multi-team programs. Two of my projects were designed to deliver maximum customer value with a one day Sprint. We released a working build in production and got customer feedback every single day while developing brand new application.
Recently, I’ve helped implement Scrum framework on large scale, end to end, multi-team product development in a regulated environment, with a team size of approx. 50. We use Kanban and Scrum and release newer functionality every month.
I coach and train leaders, Product Owners, ScrumMasters and teams. Areas of my interest are, building and coaching hyper-productive teams, enterprise transformation and coaching using positive psychology.
