Since 2001, I was deeply impressed with Agile Manifesto and XP, so I am practicing agile practices such as Refactoring and TDD and etc.
For ten years, I am teaching my project members and customers who was interested in my work style and ideas that was included in or affected by XP.
And then, I wanted to learn how to improve productivity, so I began to practice Scrum in 2009.
Now I act as an Agile/Scrum Coach since 2012, host a study group of Agile and join a volunteer group of or talk in many Agile events.

In Nov-2009, I applied Scrum to my small project, and this is my first experience. My big experience of Scrum, one big project that has more than 100 project members and 3 sub project groups from Feb-2011 to Jun-2012. I worked there as a Software Architect in the project, and as an Agile Coach in several teams, and as a Scrum Master in one of them. In these days, I gathered a Scrum Alliance Regional Gathering Tokyo 2013 committee, and talked about Agile or Scrum in Regional Scrum Gathering Tokyo 2014/2015, and other some big Agile events in Japan.
