James Smith

Certified Scrum Trainer (CST®), Mentor/Coach

Holding a very painful client-facing position and tiring of having nothing but bad news to communicate to his clients over and over again, a new job search had begun. Then Scrum took seed. In an incredibly short time, Monday mornings were once again something to look forward to and not to dread. Clients soon began requesting that we slow down our pace; we were overwhelming their IT departments with new features. Life for everyone in the corporation, and for those to whom we come home at night, got much better. Moving into the ScrumMaster role and being part of the many successful releases delivered to our clients has been an extremely gratifying part of the past years. Scrum when properly implemented makes life better for all involved. And at the end of the day, that is a very good thing of which to be a part. He has been honored with the opportunity to bring the spirit and techniques of Scrum with multiple training engagements for organizations like Sony, Boeing, HP, Illumina and the US Department of Defense. James is a Certified ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Trainer (certified by the Scrum Alliance), a Certified Large-Scale Scrum Practitioner (certified by the LeSS Company), Six Sigma Certified and holds an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management.

Agile Thinking 

In order for us to understand the benefits of Scrum and the nuances behind its framework, we begin with the history of agile methods and how relatively new thoughts in software development have brought us to Scrum.

The ScrumMaster Explored

It’s easy to read about the role of the ScrumMaster and gain a better understanding of their responsibilities. The difficulty comes in the actual implementation. Being a ScrumMaster is a hard job, and we’ll talk about the characteristics of a good ScrumMaster that go beyond the overly simplistic and incorrect comparison to a project manager 

SPRINT 

Scrum Roles

Who are the different players in the Scrum game? Understanding roles and responsibilities are key to transforming project management into product delivery

SPRINT

The Scrum Team Explored

Since the ScrumMaster is looking to protect the productivity of the team, we must investigate team behaviors so we can be prepared for the various behaviors exhibited by teams of different compositions. We’ll also take a look at some Scrum Team variants.
