Gustavo Bonalde

Agile Coach Trainer and Agile Project Manager with more than 18 years in IT Projects. I have been involved in IT projects for more than 18 years, I worked with Waterfall method and Rational Unified Process. In 2002 I was professor at Universidad Católica Andrés Bello and Universidad Metropolitana, and I read about Agile Movement. Since 2004 I began to introduce Agile practices with Scrum to my students, but was in 2009 when I used Scrum with a real project. In 2010 I got PMP certified, and in 2011 and 2012 CSM and CSPO respectively.
In 2011 founder a Venezuela Agile Community.

Currently, I have facilitated more than 20 Scrum's training to important companies in Venezuela like Telefónica, Ferreteria EPA, FEBECA, and Celestics and ICO groups from south Florida, US.
