I’m a Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST)!

After a 3 year journey, I was invited to a Scrum Alliance® TAC (Trainer Approval Community) in Vienna 2 weeks ago! The last 10 months have been intense, readying myself for this invitation. I didn’t know if I was going to get a TAC spot this year, but I prepared as though I was. No matter what happened, I knew that it was going to be a learning experience. An opportunity! If I got a spot and didn’t make it, it was also going to be a learning experience. No matter what happened, I was going to learn a whole lot – about me, my style, my knowledge, my materials…you name it. And I can safely report that this has been one of the most profound learning experiences of recent years! I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity and I decided to grab it with both hands (and feet :-)).

I worked hard for it, and I still feel privileged to have been awarded this badge (click on the badge for the certification details):

If you’re a Scrum Master, Agile coach or trainer, consider this path. It’s rewarding and there are many people along the way who are only too happy to help. In order for us to Transform the World of Work® we need more trainers. All over the world.

In Africa, we have only 4, all in South Africa. Africa is huge – there are tech hubs in many countries, large organisations who can benefit from the agile mindset. The place to start is here. At Scrum Alliance®.
