Instructor

Cathy Simpson, CST, PMP

Cathy Simpson is a certified scrum trainer and agile coach, with a passion for bringing joy, happiness and productivity to work.  As a scrum trainer she teaches groups of people to use the empirical process to build complex products and solve complex problems. Her driving questions in life are “What’s possible?” “How do we make it happen?” and “How do we have fun doing it?” Cathy combines a warm energetic style with insights learned in the trenches at companies ranging from large financial institutions to small start-ups. This enables her to effectively connect with team members, managers and executives in order to facilitate transformation and help people create the futures they are committed to. She regularly speaks about Scrum and Agile at national and local conferences. Before becoming a CST, Cathy worked in technology for 20 years as a software developer, web producer, project/program manager, business consultant and agile coach.  She credits her career in technology as the foundation for her success and her first job as a camp counselor as the reason she is a good trainer.

"The last two days I attended the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential 1 course taught by Anu Smalley, CST from The Braintrust Consulting Group. It was a great training with several other seasoned Agile Leaders who are creating change in their teams and organizations. I was reminded that real change takes executive sponsorship, careful consideration, and willing team members. Companies who are committed to putting in the time and allowing the right people to get in the right seats can transform the way an organization delivers. I'm looking forward to using these Agile principles as I build a team who will thrive on a culture of process and system improvement."

Chris H., Global IT Solutions

"This class does a great job of explaining and showcasing the strengths of agile development without making the rules rigid and inflexible. I feel that I have a solid groundwork for trying agile and seeing what works best for my team."

Derek, Onramp Access

"By tying together Agile principles and engineering best practices, this course provides a springboard from which to improve one's technical output and team dynamic."

Ted, Red Hat Inc.

I arrived with a good understanding of Scrum and still found the course tremendously valuable. They did a great job of providing a great value for all skill levels.

Karl, Guthy-Renker

"An invaluable resource for learning, improving or cementing an understanding of Scrum."

Matt, Naxos of America
