Grant Meyer--I am a Certified Scrum Product Owner and a Certified Scrum Master. I enjoy both roles and am currently an active CSM on two Scrum Teams at Choice Hotels International where SCRUM is being implemented with huge success.
As I've seen at previous organizations upgrading the Scrum, the switch to Scrum at Choice Hotels is highlighting impediments at a micro, and macro, level. The conversion to Scrum has touched virtually all departments in the company and the results continue to be fantastic. The three Scrum teams on my project are now challenging the Product Management and Business groups to provide new and additional requirements as we continue to deliver at an unprecedented pace.
I love the interactions involved in being a CsM. I love the team dynamics, and I love helping people and companies do their best. I've always said if I won the lottery I would be a butler so I could help people be successful day-to-day. Now I would add being a Scrum Master too!

I am a Certified Scrum Master on two teams here at Choice Hotels International and I love it. We are rolling out Scrum to more and more of the company and it's proving to be a real success. We have challenges as expected, but we are delivering features and code more quickly than anyone expected. It's a wonderful, challenging, and fun position for a great company. I love the dynamics of the Scrum teams, and I love helping build our community of Scrum Masters here at Choice as well.
