Biography

I, Malyadri Vallapuneni, has been practicing SCRUM for 11 years and in May 2008 he was certified as a SCRUM Master; in 2010 I completed my Certified Scrum Practitioner certification (CSP). In parallel, as a Scrum Practitioner I have been implementing and coaching Scrum in multiple companies with a proven success, improvement of quality and efficiency.

I enjoy helping teams learn how a lightweight empirical framework like Scrum can change the way they think about developing software products and offer an alternative to a frustrating and demoralizing way of doing work. I enjoy grooming the teams to practice the flexibility by continuously inspecting and improvising at each sprint as a small project.

Indeed, I attribute much of my professional success to having inclined towards the iterative and incremental development model. My first formal and highly successful exposure to an agile process was an implementation Scrum for a telecom giant to develop their monolithic OSS platform. Shortly thereafter I was given a senior leadership position at a software company and I was able to implement Scrum into the enterprise. I have seen Scrum work firsthand and I can personally identify with the Scrum values of commitment, focus, openness, respect, and courage.

Working in an agile way was rewarding, but spreading the success by grooming the other teams has become my passion. I took scrum sessions across the globe and shared the best practices and examples of the problems that I have implemented across various organizations in my career. This helps the attendees take the principles and fundamentals taught in my class into practice. I have worked with a variety of companies such as Avaya, MphasiS, Dell, Amazon and EMC to help them implement Scrum. These companies have then taken what they learned, developed software products, and successfully competed in the global market.
