Agility is why organizations adopt Scrum. The Agility an organization demonstrates outward is not just a result of their product delivery process, but also a function of its internal structures. Scrum is often twisted to fit old processes and structures, and its potential for deep improvement and creating a future-proof organization is lost. Growing a Scrum Studio allows emerging an environment in which people can develop themselves while developing great products. A Scrum Studio is one way for an organization to re-invent itself around Scrum, one way to re-vers-ify.

Gunther helps organizations re-imagine their Scrum to re-emerge their organizational structures, and thus increase their agility. Gunther consolidated over a decade of experience, ideas, beliefs and observations of Scrum in re.vers.ify. Re.vers.ify is an act of simplicity, rhythm and focus. It is a narrative showing a path, rather than predicting an outcome.
My belief. My dream. My goal. Because I care for Scrum. I care for people. I care for how Scrum is used by people.
Preventing complexity from turning into perplexity, an inability to act.
This largely refers to 2 domains: - Maturity models: Shu-ha-ri, levels, junior-senior, … - Scaling models: Nexus, LeSS, Spotify, SAFe It serves fighting our tendency to create boxes and barriers, with linear, sequential evolutions. And preventing that even ScrumAnd is being seen more and more as such, https://guntherverheyen.com/2018/03/02/the-scrumand-stance/
Change comes in Increments. Thrive on discovery Involve the people doing the hard work Continuous adaptation is the purpose Grow your own model
See the holiday analogy in explaining how “People are naturally Agile (adaptive)”
Scrum is essential for product delivery. The other parts are also important, but Scrum has not necessarily specific roles, artefacts, events, rules for them. Yet, Scrum can be used to solve this complex problem too.
The core idea is that to manage a product properly there are many activities to be done. Off those activities Scrum has an answer to developing, growing, evolving and sustaining the product. That doesn’t render the work not covered with the roles and rules of the Scrum framework futile. No, that work is valuable and necessary (portfolio work, strategizing, etc.). Even more, if an organization would have 1 person in the role of mini-CEO, i.e. overlooking the whole of the ‘other’ (non-Scrum) work, that person would be a great Product Owner to the Scrum Team(s). Better than a Product Owner who is strictly bound to one specific product management departments, and not having a clue of what goes on in the other departments.
Gunther Verheyen (email@example.com) is a longtime Scrum practitioner. Gunther left consulting in 2013 to partner with Ken Schwaber. He shepherded the Professional series of Scrum.org, while also leading its European operations. In 2016 Gunther decided to further his path as an independent Scrum caretaker.
Gunther ventured into IT and software development after graduating in 1992. His Agile journey started with eXtreme Programming and Scrum in 2003. Years of dedication followed, of using Scrum in diverse circumstances. As from 2010 Gunther became the inspiring force behind some large-scale enterprise transformations, and a Professional Scrum Trainer with Scrum.org.
Gunther left consulting in 2013 to partner with Ken Schwaber, Scrum co-creator, at Scrum.org. He shepherded the ‘Professional Scrum’ series, worked with Scrum.org’s global network of Professional Scrum Trainers, and is co-creator to Agility Path and the Nexus framework for Scaled Professional Scrum. As from 2016 Gunther continues his journey of Scrum as an independent Scrum caretaker.
In 2013 Gunther published the acclaimed book “Scrum – A Pocket Guide (a smart travel companion)”. Ken Schwaber recommends his book as ‘the best description of Scrum currently available’ and ‘an extraordinarily competent book’. In 2016 the Dutch translation of his book was published as “Scrum Wegwijzer (Een kompas voor de bewuste reiziger)”. In 2017 the German translation was published as “Scrum Taschenbuch (Ein Wegweiser für den bewussten Entdecker)”.
When not travelling for Scrum and professionalism, Gunther lives and works in Antwerp (Belgium).

People are naturally Agile (adaptive).
Process follows people.
Structure follows process.

integrated, part of the organization

‘Management’ is not a collection of
people with hierarchical powers.
It is an emergent, networked activity of co-managers.
