I love agile. I'm so happy that I had an extraordinary opportunity to be a part of agile transformation in SEB bank.
One of the greatest thing is that teams that uses scrum becomes a family where everyone is important and team has same goals. I saw the difference between waterfall and agile. That's why I've chosen to learn as much as possible about scrum.
