Equipped with broad Project Management knowledge, gathered over the years as a Project Manager, Consultant, Scrum Master and Agile Coach in complex environments, Bernice is always trying to close the gap between management and Business. As an Agile Coach, changing people's mindset is my passion, coaching them to realize value is my eagerness, and this can't be done without transparency, openness, integrity and collaboration.
Bernice believes in Trust and natural empathy and thinks this is the natural foundation of an optimal collaboration with developers, designers, architects, management and stakeholders.
Over the years Bernice has learned to constantly look for a clear vision on her products and set achievable targets, asking the right questions, quickly learning, being organizational sensitive, managing stakeholders holders, decision making and setting priorities.
Her ambition is to be active in different roles in complex domains and to help others by coaching them on the job.

Why is the scrum master role so important?
A Scrum Master is not directly a member of the team. One can say that they oversee everything from the side and supervise that the work is proceeding as planned, which, in turn, ensures stability and efficiency. Projects related to software development tend to be very complicated. A team must be really well organized so that it can work effectively. The aspect of communication with a client is also important. The lack of Scrum Master's presence could lead to chaos or even emergence of conflict situations, which may threaten the project. In addition, a Scrum Master is a support for the development team. Here’s a simple example. There’s a team that creates a problem resulting from a lack of access to technology or equipment (for example to conduct tests). In this case, the role of a Scrum Master is to respond appropriately and quickly eliminate obstacles. Thanks to their presence, the whole team should feel comfortable when working and they will be sure that the project’s development path is right.
If a software development project runs in accordance with the Scrum methodology, based on agile principles, a Scrum Master’s role will be utterly important - almost invaluable. Thanks to it, you can be sure that the project is going to be implemented efficiently and without any delays or other unforeseen problems. It should also be remembered that being a Scrum Master is a job for a person, who knows not only Agile and Scrum but also has soft skills such as; communication skills, negotiation or conflict resolution. It is also an inseparable element of work.
