Martin Künkele enjoys working with people, and is in his element as an agile Scrum Master. As counterparts he has the team members themselves, i.e. the software developers, the Product Owner, and the other stakeholders of an agile project: customers, line management and sponsors. As a Scrum Master he has to face a variety of challenges, which makes this role very interesting and varied. It demands inventiveness, persuasiveness and a certain perseverance. All qualities that Martin Künkele brings with him and that are vital if the agile transition is to succeed. Martin Künkele firmly believes that successful software development today is no longer possible without the intensive involvement of the customer in the development process, neither internally nor on the market. Today's software development has to take many more parameters into consideration than ever before. This makes such undertakings far more complex than they may have been in the past.
Software for devices of different sizes and operating systems must be able to communicate with each other.
This requires specialists in the development teams with very different, sometimes disjointed skills. Especially when data has to be stored in different databases, interfaces to other systems need to be operated, and the requirements for the security of the systems have top priority. Furthermore, testing these systems must go hand in hand with their development.
Fortunately, concepts, frameworks, and tools already exist for many of these questions. In most cases, the knowledge of these skills first has to be acquired. This can only be achieved through internal or external training in courses, workshops etc. This means that part of the development team is always in education.
An experienced Scrum team is unbeatable. Members must be able to trust each other blindly. They all know each other's specialties closely and are always able to communicate and exchange information with each other without any reservations. The Scrum Master ensures this is possible, and requires a high level of empathy and authenticity. Martin Künkele has both, which has been confirmed on frequent occasion in the past by his customers.
