Meet Jill Graves
PST, Agile Coach, Scrum Master
After more than 26 years of IT experience, with the last decade spent implementing Agile methodologies for the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), I’m eager to share my passion and expertise using Scrum with others.
Certification you can trust
I’m a Professional Scrum Trainer, which means I belong to a select group of Scrum experts who have gone through an extensive set of peer reviews, testing, training, and interviews before being accepted. The training materials are maintained and improved collaboratively by the Scrum.org community along with its founder Ken Schwaber, the co-creator of Scrum.
I am also a Certified Scrum Professional through Scrum Alliance and a Certified Agile Practitioner and Project Management Professional (PMP) through the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Over the past three years, I’ve trained more than 1000+ people in the Professional Scrum Master and Professional Scrum Foundations courses. It’s been extremely gratifying to put my keen communication, teamwork, and facilitation skills to use in helping others adopt and improve their Scrum knowledge and skills.
Things I’m proud of
- I received the 2015 GTEC Leadership Award for my role in the Agile transformation at the Canada Revenue Agency.
- During the past 28 years, I’ve held project management roles on six large-scale projects, all with more than 22 interfacing applications, over multiple years with budgets of over $100 million each.
- I’m one of just 18 certified Professional Scrum Trainers in Canada and one of 25 women certified globally.
- I am a Course Steward partner for the Scrum.org Professional Scrum Foundations course, lead the PST Candidate mentoring program and I am an Inspection Event Checker for the Scrum.org pilot program.
