Currently I'm working as an Agile Coach and Trainer for the Agile Global Center of Allianz Technology.
I, Josef Scherer (Valtech Delivery Director Agile Consulting at that time), was a Technical and Agile Coach from August 2013 to March 2014 in the BMW USP project. I coached developers, teams and managers with a focus on the collaboration of the Development Teams regarding their coding and testing activities. I introduced the idea of the testing pyramid and corresponding metrics to the organization, to improve the quality and speed of the feedback cycles of the CI system. I also inspired Mark Bregenzer and the Valtech Coaching Team to try the self-designing team workshop and helped preparing and co-facilitating it. To see self-organization work with multiple teams at this scale was one of the greatest experiences I ever had as an Agile Coach. Thanks to Mark and my fellow Agile Coaches for making this possible!
