Michael Vizdos is an Entrepreneur and Independent Certified Scrum Trainer, Agile Coach and Practitioner based in Richmond, Virginia (ScrumRVA.com).
He travels internationally to facilitating both private and public Certified Scrum Workshops.
Michael does NOT spend full time on the road just teaching Scrum -- he implements it and inspires others around the world to do the same.
In addition to mentoring and coaching agile teams on a regular basis, Michael Vizdos speaks at conferences and maintains a blog with free Scrum cartoons located at ImplementingScrum.com.
His main public training venues today include Richmond, Virginia (his home town) and San Jose, Costa Rica. If you are interested in training, consulting, or mentoring please contact Michael.
He has been in the industry for over twenty-five years.
Michael Vizdos is co-author of a book on the Enterprise Unified Process (2005) which addresses working with enterprise teams across an organization (much like the current popular topic of implementing Scrum and other agile techniques across the enterprises today).
As an entrepreneur and practitioner in combining Scrum and lean startup techniques, he continues to maintain and grow ImplementingScrum.com and ScrumInSchool.org with free information.
Interested in Scrum Training?
He founded iWantScrumTraining.com to personally help people find the right trainer for their specific needs (even if it means not hiring Michael!). He maintains professional relationships with many qualified and trusted trainers around the world.
Following your agile and Scrum training, you can get involved with AfterScrumTraining.com and RealScrumJobs.com with more free information and community building.
Michael is also involved with mentoring and coaching people to get their ideas "out of their heads" and into the "real world". For many years, he has volunteered at the non-profit Gangplank in Chandler, Arizona. In 2012, he co-founded GangplankRVA in Richmond, Virginia (it is now in two locations there with a growing Intentional Community).
All of this has taught him to Focus relentlessly and #deliver. AgileMentoring.com is setup to help you do just that on a daily basis. Join him there and see what is possible together.
