What's your experience coaching teams toward being Agile

My first experience as practitioner of Agile and scrum started in late 2008. Prior to that all the organizations that I worked with as project manager and someone responsible for software project deliveries, followed Waterfall and iterative waterfall. We all realized we needed to change the way we develop and deliver our software. I was the pioneer in adapting Agile and scrums in my organization; and have come a long way since then in my journey of agile.

While continuously improving in our practices and moving to our theme of Agile done right, I started conducting Scrum Masters trainings internally and then full fledged Agile Training within my organisation. I coach and mentor my colleagues on principles of Agile, Scrum framework, our good engineering practices that help us deliver Potential Shippable increments every sprint. I implemented Agile and managed a key project in crisis and turned it around totally.

I received the CEO’s award, Valuable Contribution award and Quality star award for my efforts as Agile practitioner and Coach to the Agile teams and Scrum masters. I also facilitate Scrum Masters’ Forum in my organization where we share our experiences, challenges and new learnings.

What do you plan to learn/explore at this conference?

I look forward to meeting experts, coaches and practitioners of Agile and learn from their experiences. I hope to get some great insights on Agile working well for distributed team and Agile at the enterprise level. Continuous learning is key to success and I aim to do that at this conference.

With more than 10 years of experience in Agile and Scrum, I want to share my insights, challenges and how I overcame them. Experience of changing mindset of the people on Agile.
