Profile

With an overall of Fourteen (14) plus years of IT experience and over three (3) years of project delivery in Agile environment, I am adept in Servant Leadership, Iteration management, conflict management and client relationship management.

Through Coaching, Mentoring and the removal of impediments, I played an active role in the day to day management and assisted in the successful release of a product. I also helped my team and stakeholders adopt best practices of the Scrum Framework. I constantly motivated my team to reach the sprint goals on the schedule and facilitated communication between scrum team and product owner on a regular basis. I facilitated and encouraged the team to inspect and adapt every day and every sprint. I encouraged my team to try new things, to explore new ways, to take new challenges and either Succed or learn.

Reinforcing my project and team management experience are credentials that include Senior Scrum Master designation, multiple certifications (Certified Scrum Master, Certified Professional in ITIL framework) and a Master’s degree in Information Systems. I am active in various professional organizations/Communities and continuously look for software and methods to improve the Scrum process.
