Scrum Master Community at PostNL

Started, grew, and facilitated the Scrum Master community within PostNL, creating a place where Scrum Masters could develop together and learn from one another.

I created a community with over 60 Scrum Masters gathering monthly and participating in intervention groups with a buddy system. I then transitioned the community from being led by someone to a self-organizing community within the company.

High-performing Agile Release Train

Created a coherent system of teams that delivers more value together after measuring, coaching, and training ART members.

The Agile release train consisted of nine teams and shared many dependencies. We improved how the teams functioned together to coordinate working on changes and remove as many impediments as possible.

Multiple High-performing Agile Teams

Helped multiple teams to mature into self-organizing Agile teams.

As a Scrum Master, I worked with multiple platform teams to better balance development and operations, organize work structures, and address their internal customers' needs and desires. Here I also used design thinking principles and practices.
