Mariet Visser joins agile42

agile42 welcomes new coach Mariet Visser in the South African team from January 2017

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!
