agile42 merges with Scrum Sense

Scrum Sense, the foremost Agile consultancy in South Africa, will merge with agile42 and in 2015 the agile42 brand will be introduced to the country

Our joint press release

Scrum Sense, the foremost agile consultancy in South Africa, will merge with agile42, a leading international agile consulting organisation. agile42 is headquartered in Berlin and already operates throughout Europe and North America.

Scrum SenseThe change is effective immediately. During 2015 the agile42 brand will be introduced to South Africa and over time the well-known Scrum Sense brand will be wound down.

Marion Eickmann, co-founder and CEO at agile42, commented: “We are excited to welcome well-known agile pioneer Peter Hundermark and his team to join our community. We have been most careful to ensure a good cultural fit between our two organisations. Now is the right time to join forces and establish agile42 as a truly global brand.”

Andrea Tomasini, co-founder and strategic coach at agile42, added: “Peter and I have known each other since 2008 and have collaborated before in our community work for the Scrum Alliance. With this addition we will have 8 Certified Scrum Trainers, 7 Certified Scrum Coaches and 2 Kanban Coaching Professionals. This is the largest collection of top-level certified professionals in a single organisation. Moreover, we have developed a powerful set of consulting products including the Team Coaching Framework™ and the Enterprise Transition Framework™ that help our clients achieve better outcomes faster than before.”

Peter Hundermark said: This is the most exciting time for us since founding Scrum Sense in 2007. In seeking a partner I was adamant to find an organisation that shared our philosophy of helping our clients to help themselves. Being part of the awesome agile42 family will bring key benefits to our local clients:”

  • The experience of agile42 with successful huge-scale agile transformations such as Ericsson and Siemens means we are equipped to better help large corporations.
  • Agile at scale requires many additional skills and consulting products. The Enterprise Transition Framework™ from agile42 provides a way for organisations to map their paths without sacrificing the emergent nature that is foundational to agility.
  • Our coaches will invest regular time cross-learning with some the best agile coaches on the planet. This is a forge for growing our skills in the fast-paced market.
  • The Team Coaching Framework™ from agile42 is another way we will foster the growth of internal coaches at our clients, enabling them to become self-sufficient faster. This is arguably the single most important success factor in sustaining an agile transition.

We are very excited to be part of this global family of talented and passionate coaches and look forward to collaborating with them and growing the agile42 brand in South Africa.
