Hello. I am a Scrum Master.an Agile Coach.a Facilitator.a Creator.
My name ist Tobias Maasland. My passion lies in supporting organizations on every level in their agile transformation and their product development.

Creating viable products is a touch challenge. I helped creating a few in the past and will use my experience for yours. Being a certified Product Owner certainly helps as well.

Being a strong supporter of collaborative thinking I use my experience as a certified BACK of the Room Practicioner and Liberating Structures to create fruitful trainings and result-oriented meeting structures.
In the past I travelled the world to challenge me – I blogged a lot about this (German). Also I work with 3D printing and creating tangible proof-of-concepts.
I have co-created two podcasts (in german language): Mit ohne Ahnung, an improv podcast and Kaffeeküchentalk, a podcast about working in the office and office culture.
