Jurgen De Smet is a Certified LeSS Trainer, Licensed Management 3.0 Trainer, Licensed Collaboration Superpowers Trainer, Innovation Games Qualified Instructor, Black Belt Collaboration Architect, game changer & loving father.
He helps leaders of large organizations deliver on their commitments to high performance.
Before, during and after an Agile adoption like LeSS, SAFe, Scrum at Scale, DAD or any kind of Lean transformation, large organizations often find that they need to de-scale and simplify organizational structures and processes. He functions as an Executive-level guide for companies approaching their second growth phase. Industry leaders in banking, insurance, telecommunications, healthcare, utilities, media and agriculture hire him to help remove obstacles in their path to innovation.
His engagements with clients achieve greater organizational alignment with fewer dependencies left to manage. Transparency with access to good data ensures empirically-sound decision making. As a result, the system becomes leaner, more customer-centric and ready with each successive change wave to build its greatest products yet.
Most organisations should ditch Scrum!
Thanks to HBR, McKinsey and more of those, Agile has become mainstream but is it Agile? I see Agile being used as a synonym of Scrum even though Agile is more of an umbrella where Scrum is just one flavour of getting there. Many inquiries show that Scrum is the most used Agile flavour in the world and I’m here to tell you to stop that movement unless you truly mean it.
Let me guide you through some basic elements and help you evaluate if you and your organisation should ditch Scrum or not. Help you recognise if you are truly a Scrum Master or rather a Scrum Novice. And much more.
