Biography

Hendrik De Backer has been Scrum Mastering and Scrum PO-ing in the HR domain with HR-Technologies NV for e-recruitment applications, HRIS dbs, competence and evaluation tools. We developed a SaaS product and succesfully grew the company on this into a solid SMB.

Scrum is also in daily practice for XIO: we are applying the agile methods to enterprise Drupal CMS and data integration developments, and actively teach collaborators and customers the value and benefits of agile development.

Work experience

XIO, CSM/CSPO/director
January 2006 - Present, Gent, OVM, BE
As a CSP and CSPO, I set up and managed the agile/Scrum process at XIO, an SMB company of now 14 persons, in Drupal enterprise web development. I am part of the management and formed the processes, teached developers and colleague-managers the way of Scrum. We developed metrics and internals tools for management and reporting on the daily Story Point spenditures and flow. Apart from actual management and daily ops, it is safe to estimate one day per month to be dedicated to Scrum strategic and evangelic work, as proven by my fellow devs becoming CSM and CSPO (see Matthias Vandermaesen and Thomas Willemsen). XIO is at the moment my primary focus, and we thrive in our sector of high-end Drupal development.
