Kangesh | Hired Vibhu as a coach in 2009
“Vibhu had responsibility for bridging product and program management, and providing daily technical and project support to the team. In particular, Vibhu brought very strong scrum and agile skills to the organization. He was an adept ScrumMaster, coordinating the 2-week sprint cycles with skill and precision. Although I’d worked in “agile” environments before, Vibhu was a great mentor and helped me develop a more fine-grained understanding of the ins and outs of Scrum. Vibhu does more than just talk the talk, he has direct, hands-on experience delivering products successfully using agile methods.”
