Professional Scrum Master \o/

Since 2009 I am a big fan of doing scrum, especially in SAP projects. I know there is a lot of fuzz going on around scrum, again especially in SAP projects ;-) But I am convinced that using scrum will really help you to fulfil your customer needs. Not the needs that have been defined some time ago, but the actual requirements to support business challenges. Requirements that can change along the way, just like business challenges.
In the years since 2009 I've done a lot of talks on scrum, coached a lot of projects but 'forgot' to certify myself... So that was my personal challenge early May.



And hurrah - I passed \o/

What did I do to get myself certified?

  • Learn the scrum basics and apply them to your project
  • Convince project management, business, team and management on why to do scrum
  • Play scrum by the book
  • Study the scrum guide
  • Do it again ;-)
  • Register yourself on scrum.org
  • Practice the exam
  • Some additional practice at scrum study
  • And go for it, the real exam is 80 questions in 60 minutes which can be a real challenge if you did not follow the steps above ;-)

SAP TechEd 2013, the best and strangest experience ever

SAP TechEd 2013 - The best but also the strangest SAP TechEd ever Together with 10 colleagues I visited SAP TechEd in November 2013. Tim Burchartz - Jaap van de Mheen - Frank Hammen - Michael Hardenbol - Steven Spronk Twan van den Broek - Roel van den Berge - Ted Castelijns - Maarten Kreijveld (Missing on the pic: Leo van Hengel and Wim Snoep, who attended one day due to busy customer schedule) Best Team CloudSitter won the SAP InnoJam on Monday with an app that monitors new born baby’s on their wellbeing. Premature babies have an higher risk on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome , that’s why we came up with a sensor that tracks heartbeat, temperature and breathing. Information is stored in a central database in which thresholds can be validated. If there is reason to warn, the mobile app sends an alarm and changes color. Time to check upon your child.
