Karen Bruns

Karen Bruns has been serving as an Enterprise Agility Coach & Trainer for the past four years; most recently her clients are in the public sector.  Prior to that she was solely in the private sector.  She has experienced success in transforming teams and organizations into well-oiled Agile engines that purr in both environments.  She has successfully coached functional managers to better understand and embrace their complimentary role within Agile. Karen has worked closely with executive personnel, project managers, product owners, developers, systems analysts, testers and vendors.  She has lived the reality of serving as a ScrumMaster, Product Owner, and team member, making her uniquely qualified to effectively coach these team roles.  She does not believe in installing Agile, but understands it is a cultural change that must be first embraced by leadership.  Karen Bruns has a natural passion for Agile and the power of transformation it holds. She is a practitioner of servant leadership, not servant beatership.

Karen is certified as a Facilitator of Open Space Technologies and is a member of the Agile Open Northern California conference organizing team.  She is a member of the Agile Games West organizing committee as well as the Emcee for the event.  In addition to holding CSM, CSPO, CSP-SM/PO, and CAL1, she is a certified ICAgile Coach, ICAgile Team Facilitator, ICAgile Talent, and is a Trainer of Training from the Back of the Room.

Karen’s most recent endeavor is the creation of Emergent Agile Retreats; an organization devoted to providing focused Agile retreats for practitioners. The first retreat will be in August of 2020.
