Eric Myers, has been practicing Agile, Project and Program management for 19+ years. I have the following certifications: PMP, PMI-ACP, SA, CSP, CSM, ITIL and MCP. I am currently preparing to obtain my Certified Scrum Practitioner certification. I am actively coaching Agile teams in Scrum and Agile practices as well as SAFe and am working towards an Agile Coaching certificiation. I have worked in the Financial, Software and Retail industries with a focus on building PMO and Software delivery solutions.
I have been a Scrum Master for over 5 years, delivering capabilities involving middleware as well as customer facing front-end web and mobile applications. I have been coaching Agile teams for the past 9 months and working with our Technology Transformation organization on implementing agile.
My SM experience involves managing single Scrum/Agile teams to large program scrum-of-scrums involving over 10+ member teams and large programs with over 100+ individuals performing agile actvities.
I have provided over 350hrs of Agile Coaching to individuals and teams within the first 6 months of 2014.
I also provided Agile coaching and mentoring to Product Owners, providing them guidance on how Agile works but also how their Role as Product Owner works within an Agile project. I also work with them on how to write and validate user stories as well as best practices for reviewing the completed work and accepting early so that they can see their value sooner.
I coach my teams that "Being Agile and adopting an Agile Mindset is not a Sprint, but a Marathon", as a team we need to focus on collaboration and building a trust through transparency.
