Genesis RTS, Agile Coach / Scrum Master / Project Manager
September 2013 - Present, Houston, Texas, United States
Scrum Master and Agile Coach in an oil and gas software organization (upstream / drilling efficiency and borehole stability applications).
As an Agile Coach and Scrum Master, I am responsible for implementing agile methodologies (primarily Scrum) across the organization, training and coaching product owners and teams in agile methodologies, and ensuring proper customer involvement with the team. I also ensure teams are self-organizing, and follow the values and practices of Scrum with a goal of satisfying the customer and improving performance and quality, while at the same time preventing impediments to team progress.
In line with Scrum, I ensure that many of the duties of traditional project management are distributed internally to the Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Team Members. However, I am also responsible for tasks outside the project teams in my role as a Project Manager, including product scope management, schedule management, cost management, quality management, staffing, administration and business development overhead.
