I wanted to call this interview “Agile hustle” because it’s a great story of how an employee in Argentina hustled to help host a Certified Scrum Master course, and then hustled himself into a conference and a new job. It’s an inspiring story of how commitment and dedication took Alan Cyment from Buenos Aires to Costa Rica, Europe, and eventually becoming a Scrum Trainer.

This is a really long interview so I’ve broken it into two parts. In this first part, Alan talks about his journey to becoming a CST.

Join me next week for part two, when Alan introduces me to an exercise called Pro-Action Cafe, talks about translating Tobias Meyer’s book, self-organizing conferences and more.
