Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) 2015-2021
Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) 2015-2021
Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) 2015-2019
- Worked in an iterative, Agile fashion for much of my career, and specifically in my last two positions over 13 years.
- I have worked with customer processes, requirements, and systems of all kinds for my entire career.
- I took the courses and earned the certifications in order to learn about the Scrum Process in detail in the fastest way possible. All of it makes sense in the context of what I've seen after having been involved in most facets of software design, implementation, and management since I began working with software in college.
- I am seeking a position as a Business Analyst, Process Analyst, Scrum Product Owner, or Developer.
- The job of the Product Owner is 95% about analyzing processes, working with customers, and defining, analyzing, and managing requirements, and only 5% about formal Scrum techniques, particularly if an experienced ScrumMaster is present.
- I am not seeking a position as a ScrumMaster, nor have I ever sought such a position.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (CLSSBB) #VIL020684 2015-Jan 2018
- Six Sigma is about making the process meet requirements and continually improve. Most efforts in software engineering and verification and validation fall into this category.
- Lean is about doing the same things using less time, less money, or fewer resources. Most of the discrete-event simulation and business process reengineering projects I worked on were exercises in Lean analysis and engineering.
