Agil8 Insights: Certified Scrum Developer Testimonial
14 Sep 2017
Rickard Jones shares his experience of Agil8’s Certified Scrum Developer course, and highlights how he feels it has really benefitted him in his Agile journey.
Sophie is an experienced Agile Coach and Mentor, with over 25 years in IT and a strong passion as a change enabler to both individuals and organisations.
Although Sophie’s early career as a product integrator and developer gave her invaluable first hand knowledge and insights into producing the
software itself, it was her experiences of project management coupled with “in the thick of it” Scrum Mastering and organisational change that really caught her imagination, enthusiasm and vibrancy for people, system dynamics and focusing on achieving outcomes.
Sophie facilitates effective change by specifically focusing on the context of where a company is along their own unique journey, and in particular the cultural and behavioural challenges they face when adapting to a more transparent and collaborative Agile way of working. Her primary passion is determining the “difference that’ll make the difference”, not only on an individual personal level but also within the team and the wider organisation. She has an ability to add clarity to goals and tailor approaches and techniques to provide the best support where and when it is needed. She invariably does all this with a large dose of focus, fun and energy!
