How it all started:
As Head of Editorial for the Classical Music Streaming App for Klassikradio (in 2016… after working already since a long time in the international Musicbiz [i-Tunes, google music and before the internet for labels, artists etc… ], I was working very closely with the Product Owner of the app. Curious me, I asked a lot of questions… so I quickly got into the Scrum methodology and had my own kind of „Backlog“. My curiosity aroused even more and I started reading articles about Scrum and Roman Pichlers Book about Product Management. While reading I can’t stop nodding my head. Inspect & Adapt, working in sprints and not in milestones, empirical.. everything suddenly makes sense. After I have finished the book I started to compare my skills with the skills needed to work in this field and most of it was already there. Many of the people- / soft skills felt very natural to me, as I worked such a long time with artists. And the rest: learning/training. No rocket science. I did my Scrum certificate and started working in this field. At the beginning as PO but then at Mayflower in Berlin, I worked the first time as a ScrumMaster. I found my new profession and now I’m on my way to become an awesome Agile Coach.
Till now I gained much experience working with teams different maturity, facilitated a lot of events and workshops, held some talks and sessions, organized the Agile Camp in Berlin and I’m very much looking forward to what else to come.
