[fa icon="plus-square"] About the Trainer

John Coleman is an Irish Professional Scrum Trainer (the first), a candidate LeSS trainer, a Leadership Masterclass trainer, a Product Ownership for agility trainer, and Europe’s most prominent Scrum+Kanban trainer.

The other half of each month, John Coleman likes to help organizations to ACe their agility transformations. ACe is John’s new brand for developing agility chefs, in effect helping the new kids on the block to not have to take twenty years to become experts in agility transformation. John helps to develop new agility change chefs, budding experts in both agility and transformation, two separate bodies of knowledge. John helps to reinvigorate in flight transformations and helps to start new ones. 

John works at all levels, with teams, with programs & products/services, values streams and exec level. Without walking the gemba of value creation and value consumption, John’s organizational transformation work would lack punch and credibility at various levels. John is a systems thinker, and most importantly, John takes an independent view. But John is also a people thinker; he specialises in Spiral Dynamics Integral, Viral Change & other models.

John's Scrum+Kanban case studies can be found on www.scrumcasestudies.com (international payments company, European bank). John's experience is current and on a huge scale, so attendees will hear the latest & most interesting stories during learning.

 

Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day course that covers the principles and empirical process theory underpinning the Scrum framework, and the role of the Scrum Master in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises.

Over an intensive 2 days, students will see why PSM is the cutting-edge course for effective Scrum Masters and for anyone coaching a software development team toward increased efficiency and effectiveness.

Throughout the course, students are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand what to do when returning to the workplace. The PSM course is interactive, experiential, and uses techniques from "Training from the Back of the Room". In this course, students work on real-life cases with other class-mates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises based upon real-life cases.

The course covers all the topics related to Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I), Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) and Professional Scrum Master III (PSM III) certification assessments.
