Mastering the art of scrum

Author: Sven Van Hoorebeeck

Although it has been around for quite some time, Scrum - one of Agile’s leading practices - is currently on every manager’s lips and on the agenda of most, if not all, companies. However, while most organisations firmly intend to apply the agile principles to their workflows most of them seem to remain stuck with their traditional operating model. At BrightWolves, our goal is to impact transformation and as such we aim to help companies make this paradigm shift from a traditional to an agile way of working. To allow BrightWolves to assist their clients wanting to transition to Agile workflows in the best way they can some of our wolves followed the Scrum Master Foundation training.

Why this sudden surge of interest in Agile practices ?

In today’s world where constant change has become a reality it is crucial for organisations to be able to respond and adapt quickly. An increasing number of people believe that agile teams perform better than traditional ones in varied areas, such as customer satisfaction, cost reduction, revenue growth and workforce morale.

To enable our wolves to assist our clients in this Agile transformation some of them already followed the Scrum Master Foundation training. Robin, one of Brightwolves’ Business Analysts, has successfully passed the exam and can now call himself a certified Scrum Master. Hélène, one of our consultants, was very enthusiastic about the training and referred to it by means of Benjamin Franklin’s words: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn”. In her opinion the most powerful trainings are the ones you can easily put into practice. Something she’s able to do working at her client where they involved her in the set-up of their Agile transformation after learning that Hélène attended the Scrum training. What better way to learn than to apply the theory in real life ?
