Our Staffing Approach
Our Staffing Approach
It’s all about people.
Your development team directly impacts the success of a product, and your team is only as good as its members.
The process of hiring the right professionals into an organization is one of the hardest and most time-consuming management tasks, but for an Agile organization, getting it right is absolutely critical.
Spend time with any Agile team and you’ll discover a litany of skillsets unusual to most IT organizations, such as servant leadership, coaching, facilitation, and negotiation. It can be tough to know what skills to look for beyond typical programming and testing competency, but Artisan Agility can take some of that work off your plate!
We select candidates based on their fundamental personality traits, prioritizing character attributes that make them more responsive to training and more receptive to coaching. We work to understand your specific needs, and then provide certified, qualified ScrumMasters who can bring out the best in your team.
How We Staff
We work to understand your needs, ensuring our ability to provide ScrumMasters who can bring out the best in your teams – but it doesn’t end there. Our secret is continuous learning to support continuous improvement.
We ensure your Artisan-provided ScrumMaster is always learning by providing ongoing training to them at NO ADDITIONAL COST to you. On a regular basis, but sensitive to your production schedule, we will continue to improve your ScrumMaster’s skills through training. We also hold bi-weekly discussions for our ScrumMasters to learn from each other across multiple organizations and industries.
Our staffing guarantee also includes immediate access to highly experienced coaches. If your Artisan-provided ScrumMaster is experiencing a problem with a team or just wants to find a way to help improve a team’s effectiveness in a specific situation, they can call upon an experienced coach for assistance. Our coaches assess, observe, and support with the goal of sustainability and self-reliance.
We also have a continuous feedback loop to assess progress. On a regular basis (typically once per quarter), you’ll be visited by an experienced Artisan Agility coach who will assess the performance of your Artisan-provided ScrumMaster, for the purpose of providing feedback and suggestions on solutions to make your teams more effective and your organization more Agile.
