Stefan Büche started as a Developer and Project Manager in a classical environment, thus experiencing first hand all the problems and shortcomings this approach brings with it. He felt that there must be a better way to create software. After hearing about this method called Scrum, he immediately decided to give it a try and has never regretted it. Since then, he's always tried to incorporate the agile principles in his everyday work. He is so convinced that the Agile way makes working so much more humane while at the same time yielding better results, that he decided in 2014 that he wants to help organizations full time to make the transition to a modern work place.

Commerzbank, Scrum Master / Coach
July 2009 - December 2009, Frankfurt/M., Germany
Acting as a Scrum Master it was my task to help a newly formed team to find together and coach the members to adopt the ways and the spirit of Scrum. The team members had been used to a very strict command and control type of leadership and thus had difficulties to grasp the freedom they were suddenly given.
This was a challenge for me too and I learned a lot about Scrum and about people.
IT Frankfurt GmbH, Scrum Master / Coach
March 2009 - June 2009, Frankfurt/M., Germany
As a Scrum Master in a newly found team it was up to me make the team members comfortable with Scrum and to coach them to making the best out of it. The team members consisted of people just coming from university who hadn't been spoiled by other project management approaches. It was easy for the team to get going and the process felt natural to all of us.
