About the instructor
Stacia Viscardi is an agile coach, Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), and organizational transformation expert who is devoted to creating energized and excited teams that delight their customers and inspire others. With humble beginnings in Port Arthur, Texas, Stacia was as a manufacturing project manager in the early 90s; she landed in the technology world in 1999 and never looked back. In 2003 she became the 67th Certified ScrumMaster (there are now over 250,000!), and founded AgileEvolution in 2006. She has helped companies like Cisco Systems, Martha Stewart Living, Primavera, DoubleClick, Google, Razorfish, MyPublisher, Washington Post and many others find their way to agility. Co-author of the Software Project Manager's Bridge to Agility and author of The Professional ScrumMaster's Handbook, Stacia has taught Agile in 17 countries and is active in the ScrumAlliance as a CST and trusted community advisor. When she is not doing Agile stuff, she is training for a marathon or other long race or spending cozy nights on the sofa with her husband Chris, and dogs Jax and Cobi. She also likes to play around with Python and Java.
A self-proclaimed process nerd, she loves helping teams and organizations discover the Scrum/XP/Lean mash-ups that enables focused, flexible and fast delivery of products.
