Islam Ismail 5 Years experience as a biomedical engineer and 6 years as a technical manger. In 2011 I changed my career and started working for Nezal LLC, a social gaming Startup, where I started my Agile career as an Agile Project Manager. The most interesting challenge in gaming industry is the high complex environment. Agile planning was challenging to coordinate the delivery among Art, UI and Development. During this time I acquired my PMP and I started to use Scrum but my knowledge didn't flourish until I joined Wirecard. At Wirecard I experienced working with several teams as well as distributed development. After I moved to Munich I was exposed to more resources as well as attending many events since "Agile Munich" is one of the very active groups. Acquiring my CSM and CSPO added a lot to my knowledge and experience.
