Biography

I am experienced Scrum Master and successfully used Agile in many projects. I have used Scrum for multi-location teams (Offshore, On-site and off-site). I worked with a product team to reduce delivery cycle from 6 months to monthly by removing the unnecessary documentations, implementing some engineering practices, automating regression test and increasing collaboration between business and development team. I trained the team for Agile estimation and planning. I worked with PMO to define the agile project delivery process.

Over 17 years of experience in designing and developing web-based applications and server components using Microsoft technology.
