Jim Schiel is a 26 year veteran of large-scale software engineering and product development, Certified Scrum Trainer, and author of "Enterprise Scale Agile Software Development" (November 2009, CRC Press), a handbook for all those looking to transition their product development organizations to Agile Development practices. Schiel, who began the largest transition to Agile Development ever attempted at the time (1,200+ employees, 7 products, and over 100 Scrum teams) and mentored the transition for four years, now freelances as the owner of his own company, Artisan Software Consulting, and has been helping other large organizations in the United States, Europe, and China achieve agility ever since. He literally wrote the book on the mechanics of large scale agile transitions!
Jim received his CSM, CSP, and CST certifications from Ken Schwaber, one of the two co-founders of the Scrum process.

All CSM courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
