Michael James (MJ), was selected as
a Scrum Trainer in 2006 by one of Scrum's original
proponents, Ken Schwaber. MJ has helped countless
organizations in many countries, created the world's most
popular online learning resource for Scrum, the most
successful illustrated distillation of Scrum's definition,
and the Scrum Master Checklist referenced in books by half
a dozen other Agile authors.
MJ is a software process mentor, team coach, and Scrum
trainer with skills in Product Ownership (business), Scrum
Mastery (facilitation), and the development team
engineering practices (TDD, refactoring, continuous
integration, pair programming) that allow Scrum to work.
MJ has been involved with LeSS (Large Scale Scrum) longer
than anyone else on the US West Coast. He is a recovering
"software architect" with programming experience back to
the late 1970s, and including control systems for aircraft
and spacecraft. If you have been an airline passenger, you
have probably already benefited from MJ's software.
Volunteers have found MJ's work useful enough to translate
into Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, Polish, French,
Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Korean, Vietnamese, Czech,
Hebrew, Latvian, Serbian, and Turkish.
