Satisha K Venkataramaiah

Certified Scrum Trainer

Satisha K Venkataramaiah is a strong believer of the fact that human beings are born with a trait to inspect and adapt and they effectively do that in small herds. He believes that any activity (software development, coaching or training) is highly effective when done with smaller teams, hands on than taking on a big enterprise. He had the privilege to sit next to a customer and develop software to solve their problems; 30 minutes into his first job. So, he strongly believes in collaborating with customer's to build simple and valuable products rather than building sophisticated fancy products. He is an active Product Owner and spends most of his time building products for Startups and Product Managers. He has over 18 years of experience in solving user problems using software in various roles but every role focused on the value being created for the end user. 

He also believes that the learning never ends so he co-learns by facilitating the following workshops 

  • Certified ScrumMaster

Workshop Description



Course Description:
Our Certified Scrum Master Workshop is taught with a mixture of discussion, activities, and a practicum that is designed to make the material "sticky"; so that you retain what you've learned. You will be engaged, learning and involved for the two days.

BONUS: Prepare to pass the CSM Exam by taking the exam in the class on Day 2 at the end of the CSM Course.

A Certified Scrum Master helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.
