I would like to enthusiastically endorse Hiren Doshi. Hiren and I have worked together on curriculum development, co-training, and coaching enterprise Scrum adoption. On our client engagements together, I was impressed by his hunger to implement immediate improvement. In particular, I’m very proud of his success in reducing a billion-dollar dotcom’s post-sprint hardening cycles from 3 weeks to 1 week. I also enjoyed watching him in action as a truth-teller, who would pull no punches with executives. Furthermore, unlike most Scrum advocates, he is able to articulate the supportive role that functional managers can play in a Scrum environment. He also has a broad training toolkit. We worked together to design the first ever PMI Agile Certified Professional (PMI-ACP) curriculum offered in India, which covered nearly 100 learning objectives beyond Scrum. In each of our co-trainings, he had the presence and confidence one wants in spokesperson. He has both the charisma to get a room’s attention, as well as the substance to keep it. I’m a fan of Hiren. I’ve seen him in action on stage, in the classroom. He is a great ambassador of Scrum, and would be an asset.
