Our philosophy


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.

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

I am the founder of Agile Apothecary. Having worked as Agile Coach and Product Owner in Rakuten, Indeed and McKinsey & Company, I had the privilege of being part of Agile transformation across multiple industries and geographies. Over more than 10 years of professional career, I have supported hundreds of teams, coached and trained thousands of people, and I know how to bring a team to success.

Unlike some “decorated” Agile coaches who spend their time chasing badges for taking classes, I’ve been spending all my time working with teams and executives, building custom frameworks from scratch and delivering business outcomes. I won’t be telling you that “each team needs a Scrum Master” because “Scrum framework says so”. I will provide exactly what your team needs right now to solve the problems they are facing.
