Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) October 13, 2014
Kate Megaw, Braintrust Consulting Group Chief Operating Officer, has joined an exclusive group of world-class trainers by earning the Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST) designation from The Scrum Alliance. As a CST, Megaw is now certified to teach Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) classes.
The Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST) designation is awarded only to a select number of Scrum Professionals who have substantial experience in not only the use of Scrum, but also in assisting others in being successful with implementing Scrum. There are less than 180 CSTs in the world and only 83 who reside in the United States.
Megaw completed this highest level of professional Scrum certification through The Scrum Alliance, a not-for-profit professional organization that offers the world's premiere platform to train top-level ambassadors of Scrum.
In order to earn this designation, Megaw completed a rigorous, two-year application process. The process is intentionally challenging because CST’s play significant roles in helping both projects and organizations transition to the successful use of Scrum.
When asked about the application process, Megaw said, “Overall the process was definitely intense. But I can confidently say the Scrum Alliance has built an approachable framework for earning the CST® certification. The challenging process is the best way to ensure that only the highest quality, most dedicated professionals carry the CST® certification.”
“I chose to seek Certified Scrum Trainer® designation because I believe Scrum is the most popular agile process for managing projects. More companies are seeing a return on investment by using Scrum than by using traditional project management processes like waterfall,” said Megaw.
