As a Senior Scrum Master, you will take ownership of developing scrum teams that deliver exceptional results to achieve business outcomes, irrespective of the challenges the team may encounter.

The team will use sufficient and effective communication to create a shared consciousness of current* *the state, desired state, and a shared understanding of quality, value, and time to market goals. This team will set and consistently achieve sprint goals and all members of the team will experience work as both sustainable and challenging.


*Your Role: *



* Facilitate the pragmatic use of Agile ceremonies that consistently produce the benefits intended by the agile framework and enable the organization to deliver products incrementally using inspect and adapt cycles.

* Facilitate the identification of delivery focused solutions to address true root cause of issues

* Own full alignment across dependent teams within a release train; manage risks and dependencies such that all parties are aligned with delivery strategy and sequence. Drive over-communication as necessary to ensure a shared understanding of dependencies.
