Professional Scrum Trainer at Berlin Product People GmbH
Scrum found me back in 2006 when the Development Team of my then client asked me to become their Scrum Master and talk some sense into the founder.
At the time, I had no clue what that would entail, but I wanted to help and agreed anyway, and I have been working in the industry ever since as Scrum Master, Product Owner, or agile coach. Typically, my clients fall into two categories: fast-growing, venture capital-backed startups, or large (non-tech) corporations. In both cases, dealing with culture while introducing Professional Scrum has been my focus.
I love sharing knowledge and creating community, thus providing others with new perspectives and opportunities—which is also reflected in my engagement in the agile community: I blog, I curate the Food for Agile Thought newsletter, I host a global Slack community of agile peers, and I am the founder of the Agile Camp Berlin conference.
