Scrum.org maintains and continually improves the most cutting edge training for Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and Software Developers using Scrum to increase efficiency and effectiveness of their development efforts.   The process to become a PST involves a combination of interviews, assessments, training, and train-the-trainer events all designed to validate exceptional skill in software development, product management, and expertise both in Scrum execution and as a trainer.  Lucas joins the ranks of only 44 PSTs in the United States and only 170 PSTs across the globe.  These PSTs collaborate with Scrum co-founder Ken Schwaber in order to further improve the quality and effectiveness of Scrum training and certifications. 

Lucas started his career as a software engineer and transitioned to program management before leading the agile transition within his division of Boeing.  These experiences have given Lucas a wide breath of understanding that he leverages in his training, coaching, and technical engagements.  Lucas has a computer engineering degree from Penn State University and a Masters in Telecommunications Systems from George Mason University. 

In addition to being a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org he also holds the distinguished Level III Professional Scrum Master (PSMIII) Certification and holds the Certified Scrum Professional (CSP), Certified Scrum Master (CSM), and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certifications through Scrum Alliance which was also co-founded by Ken Schwaber.
