For who is this training?

You have been a Scrum Master for a while now. Perhaps you took a certication training, explaining Scrum. But what can you do as Scrum Master after you get the basics up and running? How can you truly get the most of this framework to build great teams? How do you go from ‘a’ Scrum Master to becoming a good Scrum Master?

The trainer: Jasper Verdooren | sprintzero

I started as Scrum Master in 2007. Since then, I also had the roles of Product Owner and Agile team lead, but now I spend most of my time as an Agile Coach. Regardless of the role I have, I love building strong development teams and helping people grow and meet their potential.
Colleagues usually describe me enthusiastic, honest and fun to work with (and on one occasion as ‘très flamboyant’, which sounds about right).
I am certified as Scrum Master, Product Owner and Agile Coach and live in Amsterdam. I have had the roles of Scrum Master, Product Owner, manager and Agile Coach for different companies such as TomTom, Rijkswaterstaat, Liberty Global, ABN AMRO, Nuon and KPN.
