Biography

Geoff Watts is the UK's first Certified Scrum Trainer and Certified Scrum Coach, offering training and coaching in Scrum. Starting his agile journey at British Telecom and helping lead one of the largest agile transformations so far before moving into various industries such as publishing, financial services, pharmaceuticals, utilities, education and online service providers, he is one of the most experienced Scrum coaches in the UK and, therefore, best placed to give you the greatest chance of success when adopting Scrum in your organisation.

 

 

"I have had the pleasure of working with Geoff both as a coach and to have him coach us at Iterate. Seldom have I met so much ability in one man. His skills as a good listener is the first thing that hits you as extraordinary. Yet you will notice that his ability to see good, creative solutions on difficult challenges is even better.

He delivers the message in a straight forward and professional manner, and he is blessed with the courage to challenge the views of people in all levels of an organization. It is obvious that Geoff is truly committed and inspired by his work as an agile coach. I already look forward to the next opportunity to work with him. Keep up the good work!"

- Kim Leskovsky, Iterate AS

- Sean O'Donovan, BT

Getting RE-TRAINED To Be A ScrumMaster
There are only three roles in Scrum. This is often the first thing that people have difficulty with. There is no project manager in Scrum, there is no distinction between different members of a development team – they are just called team me...

The One With Two Daily Scrums
