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.

"It is a fast pace, high-intensity 2 day class to learn the concepts and process of Scrum. It will give you enough insight to realize this is a best practice in project management."

Guillermo, NCARB

"This is an engaging, hands on class where you actually participate in the Scrum process over two days. You don't sit in a lecture situation for long, as most of the class is interactive. I never got bored, and I've been a ScumMaster for two years already. I would highly recommend this class. Attending along with your product owner, or other ScrumMaster at you organization would be particularly valuable."

Adam, Edgenet, Inc.

"I would highly recommend this course to someone who is interested in learning more about Scrum and would like to bring Scrum into their business. The instructor was great at keeping the interest of the participants and teaching hands-on."

Mary, Agri-Tech Services

"Learned that my view of "agile" was pretty much wrong and that it is a very well thought out process. I learned that using Scrum, I can greatly increase productivity while providing necessary documentation."

Peter, Scientific Research Corporation

"It met my expectations and taught the elements of Scrum, focusing on the Scrum Master role, but in unexpected and innovative ways."

Steve, GE Energy
