About the Instructors
Main instructor: Emerson Mills
I began my software development career in the CAD labs of the automotive industry in Detroit and spent most of my career working in Japan where many concepts that form the core of Scrum initially took root. I’ve worked in traditional Japanese firms, small startups, US Internet giants and Game studios collecting a wide variety of experience to drive my coaching and trainings.
My first experience with Scrum came at Amazon.com in Seattle where I initially opposed Scrum but soon grew interested in growing the implementation as the benefits to the organization and my team became increasingly obvious. After successfully completing a number of successful product launches with Scrum with Amazon in Seattle, I transitioned back to Japan with Amazon starting a ground up Scrum implementation in the mobile development team.
My next step was as CTO at Orinoco K.K. where I implemented a day one Scrum environment and used the company as a test bed for progressive agile techniques.
I'm one of the founding members of the Odd-e presence in Japan and focus on coaching and training teams and organizations in a wide number of industries across Asia.
