Hello, My name is Lynda Menge

and welcome to my online career history. You can view my past scrum, coaching, consultant, creative, training and development work and learn a little about who I am through this website.
My goal is to work in a challenging, fast-paced and life-enriching environment with ample room for creative thinking and help the scrum teams get organized and be successful within their company.
Throughout my career, I have worked on the Agile framework for project management and was the Scrum Master for each company I’ve worked for. At times I was not only the Coach or Scrum Master but the Product Owner as well. I value my role in an organization and aspire to help others interested in becoming Agile. I am active in various professional organizations and continuously look for software and methods to improve the Scrum process.
The Scrum approach to agile software development marks a dramatic departure from waterfall management. Scrum and other agile methods were inspired by its shortcomings. Scrum emphasizes collaboration, functioning software, team self management, and the flexibility to adapt to emerging business realities.

Experience

I am different from other Agile Coaches because I come from an Apple background where we did all projects with an Agile mindset. We had scrum teams not just for creating software development, but for building training and development of iLearn modules. As digital marketing became more data-driven, quantitative, and iterative, we used many of these same management practices to hone our marketing campaigns, mitigate risk, and ultimately ship more effective marketing campaigns. Agile marketing and scrum changed the way Apple business did marketing.
