Scrum Team Coach
Our mission at Scrum Inc. is to fundamentally change the way the world gets work done. We provide training, consulting, and coaching to help companies create more productive and happier workplaces. Our clients range from start-ups to Fortune 50 companies who use Scrum to reinvent the way they deliver products, shape their organization, and drive stakeholder value.
A Scrum Team Coach works with our veteran trainers to help organizations train teams, launch teams, and optimize their Scrum. The best coaches embody the Scrum values while relentlessly inspiring continuous improvement within the teams or organizations they support. He or she listens, galvanizes, counsels, motivates, influences, and celebrates - but most importantly, the Scrum Coach encourages collaboration - so that they can deliver value quickly or fail fast and learn in the process.
