Mariet VisserI am very excited to have Mariet Visser as part of our team from next January. I met Mariet in 2012 while working at DSTV. We fast became more than colleagues. I enjoy her considered thinking and experimental problem-solving style.

She has a magic super power where she can get a whole group of people to consider a new angle of thought that they didn't even realise they were missing, in a way that is quiet and non-threatening. She creates space for people to engage and I have enjoyed bouncing ideas around together to get a new perspective.

Here is a bit more about Mariet in her own words…

I am very passionate about helping teams & organisations grow & succeed in their Agile journey. My passion is directly correlative to working with people, helping them become the best they can be, together as a team, as well as in their own capacity. The agile values & principles are well aligned with my own personal values, which is what has led me to being so dedicated & inspired in this role.

I am a keen observer & I enjoy a good challenge, always looking for new ways to optimise the system, looking at influencing both the people & the process. I am a very experimental & innovative thinker, & particularly enjoy finding previously undiscovered ways to solve old problems.

I gained most of my experience in this role over the past 5 to 6 years, initially taking on the Scrum Master role in 2011, and soon after gaining some exposure in the Product Owner role. Since then, I've helped many teams form, storm, norm & with the necessary allowance to fail & learn fast, perform.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time with my dogs, friends & loved ones, playing a good playstation game & having a good braai of course!
