Agile Coach / Scrum Master

For us being an Agile Coach or Scrum Master is so much more than a facilitator and process whip, it is about enabling a team to reach its true potential.

We understand every team is different and focus on working with the team to understand what is right for them. This includes …

  • Help team reach potential through understanding and empowerment
  • Identify and remove impediments that are preventing team from reaching their potential
  • Provide tooling and processes tailored specifically to the teams needs
  • Facilitate SCRUM ceremonies (stand-ups, retrospectives, planning, estimation, demos)
  • Coach management on how to maintain that potential
  • Advise on User Story creation and management
  • Advise on DEVOPS (Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment)

North Herts Sanctuary Website Design & Build

  • pro-bono
  • responsive web

North Herts Sanctuary were looking to modernise their website and add a CMS that would allow them to make content changes themselves without having to pay a developer.

Cdenza met with the trustees to better understand who the intended audience of the site would be and what the site hoped to achieve and discussed core concepts. We produced designs to bring the concepts to life and assessed the most appropriate technology to use to build the site, taking into consideration features, flexibility, cost, ease of use.

We built the site using the fantastic Perch CMS

Cdenza also consulted with North Herts Sanctuary on their wider use of technology and established them free access to google apps for business provided them with robust email and cloud storage solution enabling them to move away from Yahoo Groups.
