Certified Scrum Professional
Certified ScrumMaster
Certified Scrum Product Owner



I have been actively using agile principles and practices for the past 10 years, becoming a CSM in March 2008.  My recent areas of focus include large-scale, distributed agile teams.  Most of the teams I coach are spread across multiple time zones with team sizes up to 50 people.  On many teams I begin as the ScrumMaster.  Then I mentor another team member to act as a ScrumMaster while I focus on montoring team health.  I also use numerous kinds of technology and techniques to enable the distributed teams to effectively communicate and collaborate in order to ensure successful product delivery.
