Scrum itself is a simple framework for effective team collaboration on complex products. While it is lightweight and simple to understand, it is difficult to master. As a part of the new Ask a Professional Scrum Trainer series, we will feature a new Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) each month to answer your most pressing questions regarding the challenges and situations your Scrum Teams are facing. 

In November's episode of Ask a Professional Scrum Trainer, PST Simon Bourk will be live answering your questions. He is open to answering questions on Scrum as whole. 

Some examples of questions you may think of asking him include: 

- How can I successfully scale Scrum? 
- Are skills in DevOps needed to do Professional Scrum? 
- What are some good coaching tips for Scrum Masters? 
- How does agile work in a government setting? 

About Simon

Simon loves to help. As a consultant, he has been helping 12+ businesses and coached 30+ teams on how best to implement the Scrum Framework and embody the Agile Manifesto in their environment. Working closely with his local Agile community, Simon has built up a good reputation as an organizer, as a speaker, as an Agile Coach, and as a Professional Scrum Trainer.

Simon’s professional world was flipped upside down when a Scrum Master joined his waterfall team back in 2005. Back then, he was a miserable programmer in a dark cubicle suffering from others’ tantrum when he would fix “their” code. Being a Scrum team member for 5 years taught Simon the true potential of a high-performance team. Since then, Simon has been helping his clients experiencing how it feels to be part of a Professional Scrum Team and what happens when the Agile Mindset is understood deeply across the organization. Simon is recognized as an energetic change agent and Professional Scrum Trainer.
