Do you currently use Agile methodologies at your job?

Yes, we're using Scrum but we've yet to realize a dramatic increase in our rate of delivery. I think the primary causes of this are having our team spread too thin across too many stories and not maintaining quality along the way. We're more successful than most of our peer teams but still have a long way to go to realize the full benefits of Agile/Scrum.

Have you earned any Agile methodology certifications, e.g., CSM or CSPO?
