Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, and Gunther Verheyen have signed a collaborative partnership deal. The collaboration will be implemented within Scrum.org and covers the creative evolution of the Professional Scrum programs of Scrum.org.
Over the past 3 years Ken Schwaber and Gunther Verheyen have established a firm working relationship. They created and shared many ideas on Scrum, its promotion and utilization, and ways to improve the understanding of Scrum in the software industry.
Ken and Gunther recently decided to tighten the relationship even more. As from June 2013, Gunther will join Scrum.org as Director of Professional Programs. Gunther will be Director of the Professional Programs, including the courseware and assessments for the PSD, PSM, PSF, and PSPO programs. He will also promote Scrum in Europe, contribute to the Enterprise Scrum program, and be an active member of Scrum.org.
Ken and Gunther express their profound belief that their highly collaborative partnership will be highly beneficial. They join forces to increase the measurable impact that Scrum.org aims to have at the improvement of the software development business.
