What The Clients Say:

Becca is a forward thinking, passionate, and trustworthy leader.

-NaTasha Taylor, senior project manager

Becca worked for me for a technology startup of mine that had a newly formed team. In her capacity as scrum master and agile coach, she coached the product owner and team members on best practices for writing stories, particularly around acceptance criteria. She scheduled and led scrum ceremonies around sprint planning and backlog refinement and introduced a number of innovative tools and techniques to help improve team communications and story quality. Becca did an excellent job working with both people who were new to scrum and also experienced scrum team members. She confidently brought the team together, facilitated meetings and offline discussion, answered questions, and helped grow the team’s scrum maturity level. After several weeks of Becca’s coaching, the team had pulled together a clearly defined scrum board and a backlog that was refined and prioritized. In the process she removed uncertainty and confusion around features and workloads. I appreciate the contributions Becca brought to the project and hope I find another opportunity to work with her in the future.
