About the Instructor:
Lee Henson's experience spans a broad array of technical software production roles and responsibilities. Lee has worked hands on as a GUI web developer, quality assurance analyst, automated test engineer, senior product manager, senior project manager, ScrumMaster, agile coach, consultant, and ADDIE training professional. He has worked with hundreds of teams to assist them in successful implementation of thousands of projects. His client list includes Fortune 500 companies, Government sector projects, small and large software production facilities, and multiple successful large scale e-commerce implementations.
His unique blend of recent real-world experience combined with the ability to drive home highly technical concepts in an easy to understand digestable manner make him an amazing resource to get any team at any level best focused on project related initiatives. His personal approach and ability to inspect and adapt to any situation during training sessions has helped inspire teams to be successful at any level. Lee believes that team focus begins with the general understanding of each role and the responsibilities associated with each. Many teams fail to embrace scrum and agile principles in general due to a simple lack of understanding of what they really entail. In many cases, the ScrumMaster holds the keys to successful product and project releases. It is their duty to empower the team and provide them with what they need to be successful.
Lee remains very active in the ScrumAlliance and is the founder of AgileUtah, and publishes the Agile Mentor monthly newsletter. He is also authoring a book to help people in every role see the benefits of working in an agile environment that is scheduled to be published in late 2008.
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.
