    AGILE BUSINESS COACH - LICENSED SCRUM TRAINER

  • AGILE BUSINESS COACH

    I'm a Business Coach, specialized in Scrum, Scrum@Scale, Kanban, Design Thinking, and Lean Startup, helping international companies to uncover better ways of building products. Licensed Scrum Trainer, Certified Scrum@Scale Trainer, and Management 3.0 Facilitator.

    I am passioned about Technology, Innovation, Mobile, Online Communities, Free Software, Events, Communication, Design, Marketing, Startups and Entrepreneurship.

    MY FIRST BOOK "SCRUM FOR HARDWARE"

    I'm the author of Scrum for Hardware, the world's first significant publication of the topic.
    It contains the stories of the pioneers of SCRUM for HARDWARE: from Wikispeed to the first "Global Scrum for Hardware Gathering", the "Agile Product Charter", and it's divided into two parts: one contains the stories, the other one presents the method with practical examples and case studies.

    The book, released under the creative commons license BY-SA, is sold worldwide on Leanpub and Amazon and includes the foreword by Joe Justice, founder of Wikispeed, inventor of eXtreme Manufacturing, and it's being endorsed twice on Twitter by Jeff Sutherland, co-author of Scrum.

     

    Buying this book, you'll support WIKISPEED: 50% of the fees go to the project.
