Our philiosophy
Like an apothecary mixes medicine for each patient, we develop customized remedies to treat the problems each particular team and organization is experiencing.

We’re really passionate about Agile best practices, but at the same time we believe that there is no one size fits all, and just like not every headache can be cured with Aspirin, not every team’s problem can be solved with standard Agile tools.

If you’re tired of Agile “purists” offering you textbook solutions and ignoring the complexity of your business, relax - we got you covered!

We offer online and in person training programs, workshops and executive coaching. We also are here to support your organization’s Agile transformation - whether it’s launching a pilot team or fully revamping the whole organization. On top of it we offer to everyone an absolutely free Team Barometer Tool to help you assess and improve your team’s health. Every team deserves a chance to unleash their potential!

Hi! I'm Masha Ostroumova
Agile Apothecary founder & enterprise Agile coach
With nearly a decade of experience in the Agile space, I've worn multiple hats - from an Agile practitioner to a Product Owner, and finally an enterprise Agile coach. Over these years, I've had the pleasure of guiding dozens of teams towards a more customer-focused, efficient, and outcome-oriented approach.

Before starting my own company, Agile Apothecary, I worked at McKinsey & Company Japan. There, as an Enterprise Agile Coach, I drove large-scale Agile transformations across a variety of industries and locations.

But I don't just practice Agile; I live and breathe it, and I love sharing this passion with others. As a best-selling instructor, I've connected with over 90,000 students.

Beyond numbers, though, what truly fills me with joy is knowing I'm making a real difference in people's lives and careers.
