Valerio Zanini is a CST (Certified Scrum Trainer) and an Agile & Product Innovation consultant. I have taught Agile, Scrum, Product Innovation, and SAFe classes for several years in both private and public settings, and have helped several Fortune 100 organizations with their Agile, Product, and SAFe implementations.
As a CST I teach Scrum in public and private classes worldwide.
Over a 20+ year career, I have led product and technology teams, and launched innovative digital products in a variety of industries (banking, entertainment, networking, home improvement, market research, cyber) with the unifying themes of empowering those I work with and creating products that customers love. As an Agile & Product trainer and coach, I excel at helping teams spark product innovation, especially in the spaces where the teams are struggling to deliver the right product or where uncertainty and lack of a clear solution are the biggest challenges. My passion is for creating digital experiences that customers love and supporting the teams that make the magic real.
