Arlen Bankston: One of the First Certified Scrum Trainers

Arlen Bankston was at the vanguard of the agile movement, beginning to practice within two years of the Agile Manifesto’s writing and soon developing one of the earliest Scrum Product Owner courses.  He co-founded a premier Agile consultancy (LitheSpeed), and was among the first to explicitly blend lean systems thinking and user experience practices with agile software development practices.  An active executive for over 17 years, he continues to coach, speak, train and mentor to stay at the edge of ever-advancing lean and agile practices.  Learn more about Arlen.
