ValueClick Media, Scrum Master
October 2010 - Present, Westlake Village, CA, United States
Starting in October 2010, I left my role as operations manager and led the technology department's conversion to Scrum. I studied the books and online resources that were available. More importantly, I spent a day with our sister division, Commission Junction, that had been using Scrum for 5 years. We quickly started two teams where I filled the role of Scrum Master.
In December of 2010 I attended formal Scrum Master training.
Over the next 6 months we gradually formed all of the remaining developers into Scrum teams. I coached all the developers, fellow Scrum Master and Product Owners.
Now, two years later, scrum has improved productivity and dramatically improved transparency in our company. I am pleased that so many early skeptics have been won over to Scrum.
