PROFILE

SUMMARY

Rasmus Kaae is working world wide as an agile coach, mentor, presenter, facilitator and trainer. Being certified Scrum Master, Scrum Product Owner and Scrum Professional, Rasmus is dedicated to bring Scrum and agility into organisations by having a full stack end-to-end and top-to-bottom approach. As a trainer, Rasmus brings his professional experience from coaching and training more than 1.000 IT and business employees to work with partitipants as they begin their journey into agility. Rasmus is very calm and great at getting everyone in the room to speak up and interact during both coaching and training sessions. Rasmus has personal experience in various contexts ranging from hardcore technical lead developer to people and project management. In the latter years Rasmus has focused on helping people to adopt Scrum in order to gain full benefit of agility. Both on the job and out side the office, Rasmus has an extensive international network and have been member of the national board of Round Table Denmark in a period of 5 years. With regards to community involvement, Rasmus have been an active participant at several conferences in Denmark (most prominently GOTO Conference) and primary driver of an internal agile community in Danske Bank - an organisation with 25,000 employees working with agility as a core value.

On the job: I am ambitious, dedicated and result oriented with the capability of keeping up with customer demands while maintaining a high level of technical quality. I have experience from coordinating several ongoing projects, supplier agreements and other contractual obligations. In addition, I am skilled in workshop and meeting facilitation which leads to general knowledge sharing and team empowerment.

In person: Result oriented and not afraid of confrontations that leads to a debate regarding the solution. I am a team player who is able to share responsibility but also able to step up and take action when it is needed. I am pedagogical and humorous in my communication and is skilled working in the tension filled zone between the internal development department, external suppliers and internal customers.
