It is wonderful to work with colleagues that have a thorough knowledge of the technicalities and always find a clever solution. They are people that I can rely on.

What is your role?

ScrumMaster

How long have you been with Clavister?

I've been at Clavister since April 2007.

Can you describe your role?

I drive the development team through the Agile development process. That involves controlling the timeframes of our iterative product improvements internally, getting the right things done at the right time, and communicating and aligning expectations to our development partners and external stakeholders.

What's it like working at Clavister?

The complexities of the product that we work on, provide constant challenges to finding a way to get things done. It is wonderful to work with colleagues that have a thorough knowledge of the technicalities and always find a clever solution. They are people that I can rely on.

Education?

Project Management Practices and BA Languages, Witwatersrand University, Johannesburg, South Africa

How has your education helped in your job?

I would expect an Employer to be very wary of project managers that either have no formal education or have little experience. Project deliverables and project teams will challenge a manager all the time on the right thing to do at just the right time. I reference my education for the correct theory of practice and turn to my experience to apply that for successful and effective results.

What do you prefer to do when you are not working?

I am taking my pilots' license, which involves a lot of theory study at home and lots of practice in the air. I fly the light-single engine category of aircraft based at Örnsköldsvik airport. So residents of Örnsköldsvik will often see or hear me flying over the town.
