Curriculum Vitae

Katrin Petzold is a certified expert in teaching Scrum and SAFe®. She has particular strengths in team development and conflict consulting.
Most recently, as an Agile Coach in a software company, she successfully guided the transformation from a traditional waterfall model to an agile way of working. Here she first trained the agile values and working methods. She then took over the coaching of two Scrum teams and taught them a self-organized and independent way of working. At the same time she supported the product owner in maintaining the backlog and creating user stories. In cooperation with the management she brought about the adjustment of several workflows and optimized the cooperation between the neighboring departments. It is important to Ms. Petzold to convey a positive error culture and techniques for problem solving. After the coaching, the Scrum teams can independently develop and improve their agile process.
