Coaching for personal change

11 January 2016

Coaching works great for change. Coaching is asking the right questions. It is not about providing answers. Every time you provide an answer to a person or team you take away an opportunity for them to self-organize, grow and learn. You take away an opportunity for them to take ownership of the change and get […]

Multifunctional Learning & the reusable Sprint Backlog

2 October 2015

Have you ever seen a Sprint Backlog that can be reused across Sprints? I have! A reusable Sprint Backlog contains obvious tasks, for example tasks like ’write code’, ‘make test scripts’ , ‘execute test cases’ and so on. These tasks are too trivial to be useful and undermine one of the fundamentals of Scrum. Let […]

How To Scale Scrum? …is The Wrong Question To Ask

8 July 2017

Some companies develop 1 product with 10s to 100s of people using Scrum. And they do that without adding any roles, events or processes to Scrum.

Professional Agile Coach | Edward van Gelderen

Excellent insight in what it takes to be an agile coach.

Certified LeSS Practitioner | Diego Callizo

I am so happy I decided to participate in this training!. Cesario is a rare to find Agile Genius. I got tons of value by responding a lot of my old questions.  
I.e. What are the musts in order to facilitate a successful Agile adoption?   

I liked that the training is not based on prescribing roles and structures but mostly on changing the way we understand and think about complex systems. Some of the concepts explained like i.e. system thinking transform the way I understand big scale software development forever.

Certified LeSS Practitioner | Remi Kok

I wanted to thank you again for an inspiring course. It was three long days with a lot of good practices. Loved the discussions and the contribution from Cesario’s experience. I learned that scaling up Scrum is made possible through the LeSS (Huge) Framework without losing the Scrum principles. For me there where a few great eye-openers. Going to use it that’s for sure.

Thanks Cesario for a great time.
