Instructor

Judy Neher, CST, CSP

Judy Neher is an Certified Scrum Trainer and agile coach, passionately transforming commercial and government software teams from traditional development practices to agile practices for the last 12 years.  Judy has over 29 years of experience with the Federal Government as a mathematician, computer scientist, and traditional software manager; ultimately, as an Scrum and agile coach, trainer and leader.  She has worked with over 50 development teams, both small and extremely large and likes to think she’s seen it all, but learns something with every experience.
