- Work continuously to improve and stimulate the self-organizing attitude of your ‘squad’ (multi-functional scrum team), making a difference by creating a positive work environment, being ‘the voice of reason’ when the pressure is on, not being afraid of pointing out problems and seeking solutions when necessary

- Excellent talker as well as a listener who turns problems into solutions, always striving for improvement
- Experience with guiding change and shifting the focus to the future
- A result- and plan-driven pragmatic facilitator
