- Alex discovered agile in 2017, moving from a career in commercial teams to a Scrum Master role in a pilot agile squad. Alex quickly fell in love with the role and working in agile, and has since been at the forefront of scaling and rolling out of agile to more than fifty squads as well as being Chapter lead to a growing band of Scrum Masters. Alex combines a mix of humour with the odd awkward ice breaker, a focus on leading and facilitating growth through experiential learning whilst being tuned into the relationships between the needs of the business, customer and agile values and principles.
