Hire Certified Scrum Masters

Our certified SAFe Scrum Masters are servant leaders and coaches for Agile teams. When you hire our highly vetted Scrum Masters, they will help educate the team in Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Kanban, and SAFe while ensuring that the agreed Agile process is being followed.

What Our Scrum Masters Do

Our SAFe certified Scrum Masters and coaches are servant leaders who help build their teams into high performing, Agile educated, self-organizing, self-managed teams. Our Agile experts will also facilitate standard Agile meetings and attend ceremonies.

SAFe Implementation

The SAFe Framework (or Scaled Agile Framework) is used to organize entire portfolios with Agile. Our Scrum Masters are specialized in leading at the delivery team level and are also trained in leading SAFe portfolio's.

Scrum or Kanban Implementation

Scrum and Kanban are two different working methodologies used by individual delivery teams but not at the portfolio level like SAFe. Our Scrum Masters help the team adopt Agile and facilitate rapid growth.

Agile Tools and Metrics

To implement Agile, our Scrum Masters help teams get setup with the right tools to properly manage their Agile workflow, measure growth via metrics, and assist teams in relentless improvement.

SAFe vs. Scrum vs. Kanban

  • SAFe (Scalable Agile Framework): SAFe is an Agile approach which consumes an entire enterprise at the portfolio level down to each individual team. SAFe scales Scrum to make it work at a portfolio / enterprise level. SAFe has three separate levels associated which are the Portfolio level, the Program level and the Team level. SAFe has been widely adopted across large organizations due to its tiered approach.

  • Scrum : This is an iterative methodology for product or software development that breaks projects down into bite-sized chunks that can be measured and released individually to release frequent value while enabling fast feedback loops. Scrum is meant for small cross-functional teams.

  • Kanban: Unlike Scrum where Scrum is a method that provides structure to a team and a schedule, Kanban is a project management methodology that helps teams visualize tasks and define a workflow. Like Scrum and SAFe, Kanban is all about limiting work in progress and maximizing efficiency while allowing teams to visualize their work.

Measure Team Growth With Metrics

Our Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, and our Release Train Engineers are all trained in gathering and translating key metrics at a team, value stream and/or portfolio level. The types of metrics you will gather are as follows.

Burnup Metrics

A Burnup chart helps teams and others visualize work completed in a sprint / iteration compared to the work that was committed to within that same sprint / iteration. This chart, like the Burndown chart offers insight into progress on work committments.

Metrics provide incredible transparency and highlights areas in need of improvement. Metrics are only meant to serve as a guide for helping teams relentlessly improve.

Burndown Metrics

A Burndown chart shows the actual as well as the estimated amount of work within a sprint (or in SAFe terms - an 'iteration'). The x-axis of the Burndown Chart specifies the 'time', and the y-axis specifies the work items (or cards / issues).

Velocity Metrics

A Velocity chart provides a way to gain insight into the amount of value a team delivers each and every sprint / iteration. Velocity charts are a great way to see overtime trends as to whether a delivery team is growing and maturing.

Defect Burnup Metrics

Defect Burnup charts provide insight into how quality focused a delivery team is. This chart will show the team and others the total number of defects registered over a number of sprints / iterations.

Benefits Of Being Agile

  • Improved Team Collaboration: By transforming to Agile, your teams will have more freedom to work independently. Teams are encouraged to self-organize and relentlessly improve through retrospections and reviews. Teams become better aligned and dependencies are well managed.

  • Accelerated Delivery: When you move to Agile, your team's will work in 2 to 4 week iterations / sprints. Deliverables are produced at the end of each one. By breaking project's down into smaller, measurable deliverables, team's will be able to adapt to change quickly and release working software frequently. This also has the added benefit enjoying fast feedback to increase chances for product success.

  • Increased ROI: After going through an Agile Transformation, one of the things your business will benefit from is increasing ROI. Agile organiztaions are generally more effective and efficient and can adapt to change very quickly. Team performance is constantly measured and Agile teams are constantly improving their processes, their workflow, their skill-sets and more which is directly tied to your ROI.
