Who is Mark?

[Picture of Mark Wavle]I remember joining my first Scrum team fourteen years ago... While I was skeptical at first, I was quickly convinced of the empowering and energizing approach as I participated in creating and delivering valuable software that delighted our customers. And I haven't turned back - since joining my first Scrum team, I have been a Development Team member, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and coach.

I’ve been licensed to teach Scrum.org courses since 2016, facilitating classes for thousands of students since then. I love to create experiences where people can have “ah-ha!” learning moments and have been honored to craft these moments at companies, regional groups, and conferences across the United States and the world. I have plenty of successes, cuts, and bruises that I draw upon as I'm helping others experience, learn, and improve how they deliver value.

Outside of work, I lead a non-profit, constantly learn, lead worship, cheer on the Bengals, and enjoy time with my wife and two teenage boys.

Why should I take a class from Mark?
  • Shorter sessions across more days gives your brain space to process
  • Engaging, fun exercises designed for you
  • I’ve been in your shoes in multiple contexts, so learn from my failures and successes
  • I combine principles (why) with practices (what + how)
  • I'll bring my 25 years of experience in a breadth of roles:
    • Software Engineer
    • Business Analyst
    • Scrum Master
    • Agile Coach
    • Professional Coach
    • Team Lead
    • Practice Manager
    • National Agile Lead for a Fortune 500 company
    • Executive Director / CEO of an international non-profit
[Unstuck Agile Logo]Can Unstuck help after the class?

Yes! We offer more than just a one-time experience in training. Unlock the potential of your teams and organizations with Unstuck! Our agilists provide the expertise and insights you need to help you move past the roadblocks in your way. Reach for new heights and become more agile with Unstuck - get out of a rut and on the path to success.

[Deep Experience]We have deep experience and a breadth of offerings. We offer a full range of training, coaching, and strategic consulting services.

[We Meet You Where You Are]We meet you where you are. We evaluate where you are on your journey, provide valuable ‘aha’ moments, and help you get unstuck in your agility.

[What We Teach We Do; What We Do We Teach]Everything we do, we can teach; everything we teach, we can do. Our mission is to enable your success in developing and delivering valuable products by teaching you to own your agility.

Ways we empower organizations’ agility include:

  • Health Check: Doing some things well with Agile and some things not so well? Gain outside perspective on your situation with specific, actionable recommendations through a four-week health check assessment.
  • Team Formation or Relaunch: Starting teams off on the right foot has proven to be a key to long-term success. Team Formation is a set of highly interactive sessions that progress from training and workshops toward mentoring and facilitation in order to enable the team to take ownership of enacting new ways of working.
  • Agile Foundations Workshop: Teams can be coached and given the tools to succeed, but without support from the larger ecosystem outside of the team, these efforts can fall flat. Through this one-day immersive workshop, leaders and stakeholders will walk away with a healthy understanding of how to engage with Agile teams for value-add work, understand the principles and purpose of agility, and explore how it benefits themselves and the organization.
See you in class!
