Robin Dymond Certified Scrum Trainer

I have been in the software industry for over 26 years after receiving a degree in Electrical Engineering. In 2002 I was hired as VP of Technology to help a struggling software company that was having challenges releasing their product and getting it to market.

As I began to dive into the challenges of the company and find a solution I realized that traditional project management wouldn’t work. That’s when I discovered Scrum and XP (eXtreme Programming) and thought these techniques would fit the rapidly changing customer requirements we were challenged with.

After discovering the power of Agile methods I started to apply them with my clients and employers with outstanding results. I worked as a member of the Agile Transition team on the largest transition to Scrum in the financial services industry with Capital One.

As a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) with the Scrum Alliance I work with clients across North America and Europe providing training and consulting in Scrum, Product Management, Lean and Agile Transition & Adoption. My courses include the Certified Scrum Master, Certified Scrum Product Owner, Lean and Agile Manager, and others.

I’ve trained over 4,000 people from companies such as Capital One, Citibank, Wachovia, Sony, Dolby, Shaw Cable, AT&T Wireless AGFA, ThermoFisher Scientific, Travelocity and many others. 

I primarily work with:

✓ SOFTWARE COMPANIES – That are challenged with releasing products quickly and reliably while growing & retaining an engaged workforce.

✓ FINANCIAL SERVICES – Where it is often a struggle to quickly deliver quality solutions to internal and external customers in a repeatable and reliable way.

✓ HEALTHCARE IT – Hospitals have big concerns with software changes because of the possibility of the loss of confidential information, downtime or loss of access to systems.

If you’re an IT Director, Project Manager, CIO, VP of Technology, Software Developer or Product Manager and would like to learn more about how I can help you with Scrum Training & Agile Adoption email me.
