Scrum is the most popular Agile method in use in the world, and so more than likely your organisation uses Scrum or aspects of it in the work that you do. You may even have people with the title or Scrum Master or you may be one yourself.
We were thrilled on Wednesday to have Michael Sahota and Audree Tara of Toronto-based Agilitrix work with the Equinox IT team on Agile leadership and culture. Michael and Audree partner with Equinox IT to deliver the full two-day Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) training course in New Zealand and had just completed a sold-out course in Wellington the two days prior.
Having worked as a project manager, general manager and Agile coach I have become interested in leadership and how great leaders help create teams who are engaged, motivated and deliver the results organisations need. On Wednesday evening, I delivered a presentation on '10 traits of effective IT leadership' to a group of Equinox IT clients and staff. In this post, I summarise some of my key points from this presentation.
Certified Scrum Trainer Rowan Bunning and Equinox IT have a new training course Advanced Certified ScrumMaster that is now available in New Zealand.
