BeardedEagle Leads Nigeria’s First Scrum Certification Course
(March 2018. Lagos, Nigeria.)
History has been made.
Nigeria has been officially introduced to the globally recognized Scrum Alliance certification programs.
BeardedEagle partnered with The Agile Advisor Group through a collaborative effort with President Abby Osoba to bring the first ever Certified Scrum Master® (CSM) certification course to Nigeria. In the past, people interested in being Scrum certified had to obtain visas and travel abroad just to attend a class for their certification. Abby has been seeding the ground in Nigeria with her Scrum and Agile knowledge through coaching Scrum and Agile as well as offering fundamental workshops.
The Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster Certification is the most trusted and respected certification in the Agile Community. So, The Agile Advisor sought out Lizzy Morris, a reputable Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), to facilitate the workshop. BeardedEagle is honored to have teamed up with such a trailblazer woman and her team. The class was a sensational success.
More than 50 attendants registered for this 2-day interactive Certified Scrum Master (CSM) program in Lagos, Nigeria led by BeardedEagle’s Certified Scrum Trainer, Lizzy Morris.
For those 55 newly Certified ScrumMasters, the CSM certification provided validation that they have been exposed to the Agile mindset and principles. They are ready to evolve their knowledge of Scrum by practicing it in their teams and organization.
Participants came from First Bank of Nigeria, Stanbic, IBTC Bank, GT Bank and CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria).
These team members and managers have gained a competitive edge that will expedite their agile journey throughout the country of Nigeria and worldwide.
Lizzy reports “The energy of the group was contagious and the passion they had to be the ambassadors for Scrum & Agile was explosive. I will go back to help their vision of Nigeria becoming an Agile nation be realized. After all, every change begins first with a dream which we can take into our lab of imagination and prototype – I have seen Abby’s imagination here in this workshop. I can’t wait to see what these 55 graduates will imagine next.”
