Trainer: Shaun Smith
Shaun is an experienced trainer, coach and consultant, passionate about applying modern techniques to help teams and organisations work better. His experience with agile began at the turn of the century when, as a developer, his relentless search for better ways of doing things led him to the eXtreme Programming (XP) community.
He became a SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) in 2014, and has since provided certified SAFe training to over 900 people, on both public and in-house courses. His extensive knowledge and ability as a trainer is complimented further by substantial practical experience of managing large-scale agile transformations at a senior level.
He has held Senior Leadership, Transformation and Delivery roles at clients such as AOL, BSkyB, BBC, Pearson, Klarna, Hutchison 3G – and provided consultancy, assessments, assurance and enablements to both large and small companies on enabling SAFe, Business Agility and Operating Model design.
In addition to his expertise across the Scaled Agile Framework, Shaun is knowledgeable about a wide range of team-level and large-scale Agile methodologies. He has trained hundreds of people in Scrum and related Agile methods and techniques. He is a Certified TBR Trainer (Training from the Back of The Room) and also holds certifications in alternative Scaling Methods (LeSS, [email protected], DaD), as well as Scrum.
