Marianne has been part of agile teams for the past 15 years. Mostly using Scrum methodology, she participated as a scrum team member as the original (and only) technical writer for ManageIQ, www.manageiq.org. In 2015, she became a Certified Scrum Master, and used those skills with her team at Red Hat. She has adapted those methods to work with a team of developers from a variety of geographic locations. Most recently, she has stepped into the Product Owner role as one of the leads in an effort to sustain and manage customer satisfaction from the engineering perspective.
Marianne prides herself in her ability to communicate effectively with all levels of software organizations across multiple disciplines, including engineering, sales, support, and business units. She appreciates the challenge of connecting people to keep the business moving and the developers working.
Of all the Agile Principles, she values “people and relationships over process” the most.
