  • Ability to leverage capabilities across the business to solve local problems.

  • Experience developing shared internal training and learning materials that apply the principles of Lean, Agile, and product transformation.

  • Ability to support our Agile Coaches to evaluate squad maturity and create a realistic plan to help them continuously improve.

Your behaviours:

  • A servant leader whose focus is on the needs of the team members and the people they provide value to (the customer), with the goal of achieving results in line with the organization’s values, principles, and business objectives.

  • A facilitator, setting the stage and providing clear boundaries in which the team can collaborate.

  • A coach; coaching the individual with a focus on mindset and behavior, coaching the team in continuous improvement, and coaching the organization in true collaboration with the Scrum team.

  • A manager, responsible for managing impediments, eliminate waste, managing the process, managing the team's health, managing the boundaries of self-organization, and managing the culture.

  • A mentor that transfers Agile knowledge and experience to the team.

  • An impediment remover: solving issues that are blocking the team's progress, taking into account the self-organizing capabilities of the Development Team.

  • A change agent: to enable a culture in which Scrum teams can flourish.

  • Communication: critical in this role as you are listening, comprehending, repeating, summarizing, energizing, observing, writing, simplifying, critiquing, suggesting, asserting, chatting, presenting… all in one. Each conversation merits its own synergy and skill.

  • Taking responsibility; you are a representative of your team. If you can build and gain their trust, then you should be able to stand up for them and be proud to represent them whether they have achieved success / lesser success.

  • Detail as needed: a scrum master can be involved in a very detailed decision which determines the solution to a problem or in a discussion that maps the strategy of an implementation. Regardless of the level of detail, you should be able to switch gears.
