Biography

Thomas is currently engaged as an Agile Coach at Sybit GmbH, Germany.

He consults leaders in introducing Agile values and practices to their organisation and works as Scrum Master together with development teams.

Thomas van Aken started to work with the Scrum Framework in 2008. As Agile Coach, Product Owner and Scrum Master he've joined several successful Agile projects and experienced huge synergie effects with other Agile frameworks like Kanban and XP.

For him Scrum is not the answer to everything but a great basis to leverage both - software quality and fun at work.
