The latest from my blog

Hello, I am Magnus Dahlgren

Magnus Dahlgren

I’m a freelance Scrum Master and Agile Coach based in London, United Kingdom.

I started out as a software developer but have been working as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach in some shape or form for the past 12 years. I love helping teams deliver awesome products, supporting them and those around them in finding approaches and ways of working that work for them.

My agile journey

What I’ve done so far

  • Magnus Dahlgren Enterprises (since 2019). Starting September 2019, I'm offering Scrum Master services on a short-term freelance basis.
  • MyDrive Solutions (since 2018). In my current role as agile coach, I support several teams and am building an Agile Community of Practice.
  • Hive (2017 - 2018). As a Scrum Master on a contract basis, I initiated a new team in a new product area and helped them become a productive and jelled team despite being spread across 4 timezones.
  • BBC (2010 - 2017). I had the pleasure of working with several different teams around the corporation as a Scrum Master, helping them deliver services that millions of users care very passionately about.
  • Ominor Ltd (2007 - 2010). I learned a lot during my time at this e-commerce agency, starting as a scrum master and ending up as a product owner.
  • Pilotfish Networks (2004 - 2007). My first real job was as a Java developer back in my native Sweden. After a couple of years, I took the step to become a project manager. Soon thereafter I came across a better way of working called ’agile’ and took my Certified Scrum Master in 2007.

My qualifications

My certifications

  • Certified Scrum Master – CSM (I’ve held this certification longer than 95% of other CSMs)
  • Certified Scrum Professional – CSP-SM (only 1% of CSMs hold this certification)
  • LeSS Practitioner – Large Scale Scrum
  • Coaching Agile Transitions – ICAgile Certified Professional – ICP-CAT
  • Agility in the Enterprise – ICAgile Certified Professional – ICP-ENT
  • Agile Coaching – ICAgile Certified Professional – ICP-ACC
  • Agile Team Facilitation – ICAgile Certified Professional – ICP-ATF
